Peek Retina with Clip and Cap


Peek Retina – smartphone adapter for retinal imaging

Peek Retina is a portable ophthalmoscope that enables you to view and capture retinal images on your smartphone wherever you are, through a dilated eye.


  • Intuitive and easy to use, converting your smartphone into a retinal camera in under 30seconds
  • Works in any environment from clinical settings to remote rural areas.
  • Allows you to examine the optic nerve and macula to identify diseases such as glaucoma, cataract, diabetic retinopathy, and age related macular degeneration.
  • Enables immediate sharing of images captured of the back of the eye with other professionals, transfer to EPRs or to show the patient what you have seen 

Proven results

Prototypes of Peek Retina have undergone extensive validation including a trial in partnership with the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, the Kenyan Ministry of Health and Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Trust. Over 2,000 retinal images were taken using Peek Retina and a standard desktop retinal camera, both were independently graded at Moorfields. Grading of the optic nerve was found to be comparable using both methods and our research has been published and is open access here.

  1. Rated 3 out of 5

    This is clearly for out in the field work and is quite difficult to get a decent, clear image. I could not get my iPhone to focus consistently enough to save an image to the ‘phone. I think I will dust off my ophthalmoscope as and when needed. The feel is a bit plasticky.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Very good to use and with practice it can be used in a dark room too without dilating the eye which I also tried on a patient and got a good picture. but best with a dilated eye. I love it and I have started using it on my patients.

    Is this device available in India?Thanks,

  5. Rated 3 out of 5

    Maybe you can visit a Chinese company’s web,
    This is an amazing product considering the quality of the retina picture.

  6. Rated 1 out of 5

    It’s a ring of six LEDs that sit around a smartphone lens. – that’s it, and it costs much more than many smartphones. None of the “big” challenges have been solved – in particular non-mydriatic use, straightforward alignment and easy image capture. This is not what was implied earlier in development. I feel like the victim of a bait and switch and I’m very disappointed with the current product. All hype and little substance. Seriously – it’ six LEDs dotted around the camera – that’s it!

    Nice to see this little and effective gadget.

  8. Hi Lauri, thank you for your feedback. I”ll touch base with from my @peekvision account shortly

  9. Malaysia’s Law currently does not permit the usage of dilating drops for optometrists. Using PEEK on an undilated eye is challenging

  10. Didn’t realise when I signed up could only really use it properly on dilated pupils which seriously limits its use in everyday practice for me as we don’t dilate eyes in GP. Love the idea and concept though

  11. leichte, sichere Bedienung

    TRANSLATION: Easy, safe operation

  12. It was great to be able to show to the local optomestrist the photos of the retina, but also for my staff and patients, and explaining them the disease. It is a wonderful tool for teaching in those conditions, that require minimum training. I was tempted to give the peek to the local optometrist, she was the only eyecare specialist in Wukro and there are a lot of eye problems in that region. But giving it away meant that I would not been able to test it, so I had to make a choice.

  13. Feedback emphasize the use on non-dilated eyes. Due to current the equipment to achieve examination without mydriatic is comparative expensive, price range from few thousand GBP to twenty thousand GBP. Also if the equipment is connected to a portable printer, the image can be printing on site.

  14. Easy to see retina, difficult to get good pictures. You see it, you click and then you were too late. Automatic picture taking would be great. Best would be automatic composite picture (to get full retina photo).

  15. Overall, a very well designed product.

    After attaching the adapter to my phone and after magnetically sticking Peek onto the adapter, I find that it may still inadvertently move because it touches the patient’s face. This is a very minor point in a great product. Perhaps look towards further stabilization if possible.

  16. Fits well to a number of phones easy to apply and remove. Easy to use

  17. It takes a little time to become confident in using the hardware (distance, angle, focus)

  18. Nice simple and clean looking design. It has a professional look. It shows that some real thought went into the design & simplicity of it’s use.

  19. I have used it approximately on 8 patients so far and shown a good number of other providers and love the practice box!

  20. I love the color . It takes a few steps to get it going. But once I feel more comfortable using it, it should be quicker.

  21. needs practice….. also light reflections

  22. The use is very straight forward

  23. It takes some getting used to despite the good instructions. Also I could not find the recommended camera settings page on your website – please make this easier to find and include the link on the instructions sent out with the package.

  24. It was way better than what i expected

  25. Looks good but still as a GP, I’m struggling to actually be able to see the retina in patients. An app would be good.

  26. I love the compactness of the device and that it is so lightweight (Optometrist)

  27. Great Packaging!

  28. I LOVE my unit am impressed with how well it works and the construction/packaging.

  29. Devices that help Healthcare services are always changing. New devices, and medications are constantly improving the medical industry, changing the needs of health professionals and health systems also. I hope peek Retina will help us to provide quality eye care in the developing countries like Ethiopia.

  30. It is very suitable for using test screening of diabetic retinopathy

  31. I like this device so much for the diagnosis purposes .

  32. Uso na triagem da clínica (Use in clinical screening)

  33. (verified owner)

    A revolutionary piece of kit

  34. (verified owner)

    This is a game-changer for our industry

  35. (verified owner)

    This simple to set up and adaptable smart phone attachment allows the taking of quality retinal images from a dilated eye with the minimum training. The ease of capture with widely available portable devices and then safe transfer of images should open up retinal health screening to areas previously without any form of eye care.
    I fully commend this breakthrough gadget

  36. I am impressed by it from the brief exposure we have had

  37. The package suffered absolutely no damage and my device works great!

  38. I am delighted with Peek Retina. It is extremely easy to use and I now carry it in my pocket so it is always with me. I have used it to examine patient where I want to explain to them what I am seeing. It is most useful when I have my remote clinics

  39. Compact and very easy to attach to a device, portable . But I’m still getting used to getting a technique to get good images.
