As someone who has been plagued by ear wax buildup i find this tool to be crucial. Every 6 months i have to flush my ears from loss of hearing from built up ear wax. I always pull a large plug out larger than my ear canal. All nurses are always shocked at the size of the plugs. I started flushing my own ears after awhile. And this makes it easy to identify whether or not my issue is surely a plug or not so i dont flush my ears for nothing. The images shown are of both ears after flushing. One the plug is completely removed while the other still has some remaining. AKA the dark brown is the ear drum and the yellow gold is the ear wax build up. So this tools makes is easy to determine that i need to keep flushing the one, while not the other. The camera is easy to maneuver by yourself. If you use one hand to lift your ear lobe and the other to move the camera you can work the camera in by yourself. I did not have any issues with software on my Android. This camera is a Godsend. I will buy another if something ever happens to this one.
So cool to have the ability to see in my own ear as well as screen shot pics of what i’m Seeing. As a mom and speech/language pathologist I am asked many times to look in kids ears. This usb otoscope makes it so easy to show and explain what I am seeing. This also allows the ability to look in my own ears and see blockage or earwax. I have a handheld otoscope and will never use it again as long as I have this! My kids hels still long enough for me to see in their ear because they were able to watch too!
In the past, I've had a problem with excess ear wax build up and have had nurses irrigate my ear to clear it out. There are over the counter drops to basically do the same thing, but the problem was I never knew if I needed to use them and if they were doing anything. This camera helped with that.
This device is quite easy to use and gives a very good image of the ear canal. My order was shorted the needed connection to connect to my Android devices, however the customer service shipped the missing connector and all worked well. The scope has an adjustable LED light which works well. for less than 50 dollars I feel this was a good value. I am thinking of ordering a couple more. The scope comes with attachments that allow you to remove excess wax from your ears. This is not too hard to do, however it will take some patience and a soft touch to get used to "steering" a mini camera into your own ear. I am well pleased with this device.
I have been having a pressure problem with my ear for awhile now and the doctors have no idea. I got the Otoscope to see for myself that nothing was inside my ear. The scope is easy to install (on an Android anyways) and I had it set up in 5 minutes. It is hard to tell which side is up on the camera so you have to play with it a little.
Have been battling an awful otomycosis infection in my ear for several weeks. I am using this tool to see if the medication is working and if/when I need to go back to the doctor. In all, this is a steal at this price!
Actually as described, very accurate camera resolution, usable accessories, works all perfectly, fast delivery time
It's cheap, it's decent quality, absolutely a breeze to set up. Most likely plenty good enough for almost anyone that just wants to get an idea of things before risking medical bills. We like it!
