Ophtalmoscopic device can be adapted on the lens, images can be read and transmitted. In a context of developing countries, engineers have developed a clip-on device that allow examination of cytological and histological slides. This enable real time examination in a field context. Additional device can be connected to the smartphone throught the micro-usb port including infrared thermography, otoscope or ultrasound.
