Get a product like this for your ears, nose and throat and not just any endoscope. I was recently cleaning out my ears with cotton swabs when I found a very tender, highly sore spot inside my right ear. It was too deep into my ear canal for my wife to see what was going on. I had previously had an ear wax removal tool with camera and was trying to look into my ears one time and even though the camera tube was small, it wasn't small enough for me to see deeper into my ear canal. Besides, it had umpteen feet of extra cabling that I did not need for this purpose. Anyway, hooking this device up to my Windows 10 laptop was a breeze. I connected it to one of my available USB ports and then went to my camera app that was already already installed because I have a built in webcam. I had to flip a setting to switch to turn it off the internal laptop camera to the external otoscope device. After I did that, it showed up instantly on my screen.
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 ear wax extractor camera helped with that. While it came with an adapter to hookup it up to my smartphone, I used it on my PC so I didn't have to download an app. It worked flawlessly right away. I just plugged the camera into my computer's USB port, waiting 30 seconds for Windows to find it, and then opened Window's built-in Camera app. It instantly found and showed the camera. The camera itself has pretty good image quality. Because the lens of the camera has to be pretty small to fit in your ear, don't expect stellar, hi-def image qualify, but I could clearly see my ear drum. The LED lights on it can get warm but they are adjustable with a built-in slide dimmer.
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. Make sure to use the little attachments that come with because the light gets hot. I tried it just inside to see what it felt like and it also is scratchy. I'd rather not have to go to the doctor. It was a good tool to have to make sure I don't have an ear infection. It also takes video and pictures so you can send them to your doctor.
I find that I'm taking my kids into the doctor all the time to see if they've got an ear infection. I don't recommend self-diagnosing anything, but it will certainly be nice taking a quick look to get a sense of how urgent a doctor's visit may be. This works perfectly with Windows and the built-in camera app. Just type "camera" into the search bar in Windows and it'll be right there. At first, the camera app will be using the forward facing camera if your computer has one, but press the little button that you'd normally use to switch from forward to rear facing camera, and it'll go to the next available camera input - which will probably be this. The focal length (or whatever it's called) is one inch or so, meaning that it doesn't really focus well on anything further away. So you can point this thing at yourself and you'll see a blurry image of yourself. But if you stick it in your ear, it's at the perfect distance to see things clearly. You'll very quickly get an idea of what the ear drum looks like. Get used to using it on healthy kids and then you'll be all set when they start to complain of ear aches.
A really great value here. The picture quality is great (using a MacBook to look at the image). The brightness of the light is perfect for checking my children's ears. My kids love to see inside their ears as well so it's fun for them too. Very easy to clean but make sure you have alcohol pads and clean everything before each use. My only complaint is with the USB adapter, it is very snug and I have trouble removing the camera from the adapter when I'm done using it.
I was very pleased with my experience shopping for this item! It’s affordable, delivered very quickly, and made a fantastic gift. My sister was very happy with the results she received from the product. Definitely recommend!
Right out of the Box I connected it to my MacBook and was looking in my ear in seconds. The picture was HD quality and I could see everything in my ear 👂 it's cool everyone needs one.
While I wouldn’t recommend this tool for cleaning your own ear (it would be great if it were a bit smaller) it is extremely fascinating and helpful to be able to see! I have small children and this otoscope has been more than useful to check on their ears... picture quality is great if you keep the lens free of wax. It takes some time to get over to the direction/visual learning hump so tread carefully in your own ears but other than that I would highly recommend this!
I bought this scope to take a closer look inside my ears. The results were eye-opening! I saw that the basic cotton swabs cleaning was insufficient. Now, when I wash my face, I include the visible part of my ears (not just behind them). I even include them when using a face mask. Now the Otoscope view of my ear skin looks really clean.
I use it to look at my gums, facial skin, difficult to see areas as well as my pets' ears, nose and mouths more closely to determine if I need to enhance our daily routines.
I take pictures when I find areas needing improvement. As I modify my hygiene routine, I take subsequent photos to compare.
This device makes it easy to take an almost exact photo to simplify eyeballing improvement.
I bought this to take a look at my eardrum. It works well! I used it successfully with my android phones and tablets, and also my Windows PC. It took a bit of getting used to regarding navigating it down my ear canal but now it is no problem. My only regret is that I kind of wish I got one with 1080p resolution. While the 720p resolution is not bad, I do wish I had a bit more clarity that the 1080p would have given me. But overall I'm quite happy with this purchase.
One thing I want to mention is that using the attachments to dig out ear wax is harder than I thought. It is also pretty easy to scratch the inside of your ear canal. I would use this more as a observation tool to look around in your ear instead of trying to constantly clean up in there. As an observation tool, it is pretty cool.
Plugged it in to my PC's usb port, clicked on "Camera" in the start menu, and it was up and running. Forget using a tiny phone screen, I've got a 34" monitor and had a huge full screen image to look at.
I've always had trouble hearing with my right-side ear. This device gave me a crystal clear picture of the hardened wax buildup that I suspected was in there. Two large boulder-sized lumps, layered with one of them pressing against my ear drum where only about 1/4th of my drum was unobstructed. I tried using the included plastic scoops but it was incredibly loud just touching one of the lumps, so I'll try soaking them with hydrogen peroxide first, then using an ear flush gadget.
Very worthwhile device to have. Can't believe it's so relatively cheap to buy.
This ear camera works perfectly and arrived fast. Had a few issues when trying to get it to work but Ryan from customer service was able to help me get everything sorted. THank you
I'm a medical professional trying to build a quick home kit, really did not want to spend ~$1000 for a set of Welsh Allyn. Been testing this unit for 6 months, the unit works really well as a replacement for a traditional otoscope. It is basically plug-n-play on Windows/MAC, I have not tried it on an iPhone since we do not own one. Android is not a simple plug-n-play, you have to install the app, which is only reason it lost a star on "ease to use", the android app is very buggy. Just a few quick notes; quality of pics = excellent, build quality = good (metal body and tip and quality cord with reinforced ends around the bends), connectivity = excellent (has USB-C, USB, microUSB). Overall I am quite pleased with the unit after 6 months of use, I as able to determine chronic allergies in a family members by visualizing white blisters/ulcers on the nasal turbinates.
This is the best ear cleaning tool for sale online, hands down! A straightforward and smart visual ear pick with a bright LED lens and a carrying case for safe storage when not in use. Shipping is fast
I searched all over the web on where to buy ear cleaning camera online and I am so lucky to have come across this page. It does exactly as advertised and for a great price compared to other retailers. I cannot recommend the FLOOGEAR Wax Removal Ear Kit enough!
It took awhile to figure it out, but the scope works great! The company was great about helping me with my issues, and I'm glad to say I'm happy with the product. Love it, and would buy again!!
I've always had itchy ears and hated not knowing what was driving me crazy. I was a bit skeptical when I got this camera but it was pretty easy to use. The adaptive usb/microusb plug is super helpful, just make sure you push the micro usb into your phone or device all the way (I thought mine was defective until I pushed a little harder to firmly plug it into my phone). It's really cool that you can see and record what's going on inside your ear. I would caution against using the little ear scoops that come with it. The walls of your ear canal are super sensitive past a point and I would recommend going to a doctor for anything really deep, especially by the ear drum. My only concern with this product is that it does get a little hot to place against your ear if it's been on for a while as the light will heat the end with the camera. Not so much an issue with the black funnel attachment but be careful when using the scoop attachment. Also as someone with motion sickness, I would recommend not rotating the camera too much while staring at the screen haha. Overall a really great buy for the price which has put me at ease about what's going on in my ear. :]
This is a great product! It clarified what my problem was and allowed me to know and solve most of my earwax problems.
The caveat: for those who have extremely small ear canals, the plastic paddle attachments are just too thick thick and will get me within (this is a guess 1/4" to 1/8" of an inch) of me ear drum. I presume 99.9% of users will not have this issue. I cannot get the wax on the ear drum off!
A word on the direction: keep rotating the device until up and down and right to left seems intuitive; otherwise, the direction you intend is well very hard learning curve.
my dad has had excess ear wax two years in a row that required office visits and flushing of his ears. both times he was told to use mineral oil periodically, but only after the second visit did he decide to make it a monthly routine. he got this otoscope to monitor and record his ears between doctor visits. he said it’s easy to use, takes clear pictures, and does exactly what he needs it to. he has one recommendation: always check the orientation of the probe before you start (like a regular camera there is an up, down, left, right). the easiest way for him is to point the probe at the date/time of his ipad and rotate the probe until the text is right side up. the image will then have the proper orientation and won’t be upside down and reversed.
I was dealing with a very painful zit inside my ear for weeks. Couldn't see it or reach it myself to pop it. I didn't want to spend a bunch of money going to the doctor just to have a zit popped so I bought this thing. It takes a little bit or practice to get used to controlling the scope while looking at a screen. I was able to use the provided attachments to apply enough pressure to pop the zit and drain everything out of it. Made sure to irrigate and clean out the inside of my ear afterwards to prevent infection. This provided so much relief! I ended up having to use it again a few months later when another zit formed. Also helpful for checking and removing ear wax. Be careful when using this product.
