TEMPLE, TX (KCEN) - More proof that iPhones are being used for pretty much everything.

One day doctors may be able to conduct a thorough exam of your eye with the help of an iPhone.

An adapter for smartphones is currently in the works that takes high-quality images of the front and back of the eye . And it is not hard to use!

Health experts are excited about this because it could bring eye care to remote areas, and allow pictures to be stored in electronic medical records. The adapter has not yet been approved by the FDA.
