One significant limitation to the fundoscopic exam is the dated tool. I have been using the Welch Allyn PanOptic ophthalmoscope for the past 7 years and life is so much easier with it. No need to dim lights, 50% greater viewing area and simply amazing. If you haven't tried one you should it make a huge difference.

I use both (most of our rooms have the PanOptic) and agree you can see more w it - as with the standard ophthalmoscope, it also takes some practice. Thx for the comments!
