Both are handheld devices, used by specialists to look at the outer ear canal, eardrum, or the back of the eye, known as the fundus. These diagnostic devices are extremely useful for healthcare professionals in a range of specialisms, as they can help to identify potential problems in their patients.

Otoscopes are used during ear examinations to take a closer look at the outer ear canal and the eardrum. Using a light and a magnifying glass, the healthcare professional can examine the ear in detail, helping to see if there is a possible ear infection or a build-up of ear wax.

Another popular tool to use is the ophthalmoscope, also known as a fundoscope. This tool allows the specialist to look at the back of the eye and see the structures of the eye in detail. Sometimes, healthcare professionals will use the two tools in the same examination in order to get a thorough understanding of their patients and their needs.
