Ophthalmoscopy

 

a method of examining the interior, or fundus, of the eye. Ophthalmoscopy requires a magnifying glass, a light source, and an ophthalmoscope, which is a mirror with a hole in the center for directing a beam of light within the eye. Complex electrical ophthalmoscopes are also manufactured; these are equipped with their own light source and optical systems.

Age related disease study 1 and 2 (AREDS 1 and AREDS 2) and other studies before OCT era were very important in terms of sorting out drusen based on their morphological characteristics on fundus photography or indirect ophthalmoscopy and recognizing the ones that are more prone to progress to advanced stages of ARMD (atrophy or wet form).
