iPhone 13 Pro Max Macro Camera Used by Ophthalmologist for Eye Treatment

By Lore Apostol / September 30, 2021

Among many other features, the new iPhone 13 Pro's camera boasts a Macro feature, which allows for taking extremely close-up pictures that capture incredible detail. MD Tommy Korn from San Diego, California, decided to use Apple's Macro camera for eye treatment and found this idea useful.

The ophthalmologist used the Macro camera's technology to observe and document essential details about patients' eye health and posted some pictures on their LinkedIn account to show a particular case of cornea transplant, as seen below. The doctor observed the results and progress after the procedure to see how the healing went.

Been using the iPhone 13 Pro Max for MACRO eye photos this week. Impressed. Will innovate patient eye care & telemedicine. Looking forward to seeing where it goes. Photos are from healing a resolving abrasion in a cornea transplant.

He further goes on to say that "Macro eyelid iPhone photos will help earlier cancer diagnosis," too.

Apple does have a new camera mode but lacks the addition of a new lens specifically designed for taking Macro photos. However, iPhone 13 Pro Max has an ultra-wide 12MP camera with an F1.8 aperture, 120° field of view, and Macro Photography mode that is capable of capturing Macro images 2 centimeters away from the subject.
