PHC physicians mostly do not fulfill history taking or physical examination of their eye patients, while assessment of visual acuity and ophthalmoscopy is rarely performed.

We recommend routine ophthalmoscopy and eye movement examination in each session of patient exam.
Diagnosis of NAION was based on the history of sudden vision loss, disc pallor on fundus ophthalmoscopy, visual field defects consistent with NAION, and no signs or symptoms in medical history suggestive of arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (AAION).
Grade B (moderate) PVR was characterized by wrinkling of inner retinal surface, of the tortuosity of retinal blood vessels, decreased mobility of vitreous gel, retinal stiffness, and rolled edges of retinal breaks detected on slit lamp and indirect ophthalmoscopy.
All patients with uveitis were examined by a single uveitis specialist (M.R.), who performed complete ophthalmological examinations, including visual acuity, anterior biomicroscopy, tonometry, and indirect ophthalmoscopy. Study inclusion criteria were presence of RTR in 1 or both eyes and specific T.

The posterior segment was determined using images obtained by ophthalmoscopy (Retinal Camera TCR-50DX, Topcon) performed after pupillary dilation with 1% tropicamide (Tropinom, Genom Oftalmologia[R], Ebu-Guacu, SP).
Multiple noninvasive diagnostic imaging tools for screening as well as detection and monitoring of the diabetic retinopathy are available, for example, fundus cameras [3, 4] or scanning laser ophthalmoscopy [5] for en face images of the posterior fundus or OCT scans for cross-sectional images of the central retina [6-8].
This is because GPs only have ready access to direct ophthalmoscopy, a technology that has low sensitivity, [8] even in the best hands, and is unpopular with patients because it requires the pupils to be dilated.
Chapters address Monte Carlo simulation, polarimetry, frequency domain imaging, multiphoton microscopy, optical coherence tomography, fluorescence techniques, blood flow imaging and angiography, photoacoustic and optoacoustic imaging, laser ophthalmoscopy, intrinsic optical signal imaging of the retina, and methods for optical clearing.
