It takes some practice to get the hang of looking in the ear, but the otoscope works just fine. The light is nice and bright and it is very compact.
Awesome product! Now I am literally Dr. Mom instead of taking my baby to the doctor to get his ears checked every time I suspect an infection. Thank you for the product!
The package was stapled shut like one of the other reviews i read
Purchased this Dr Mom LED Otoscope and the one I received looked filthy and used (GROSS!). Even found some hair inside the package! The package was stapled shut like one of the other reviews i read. Then on top of that i was charged a dollar to return this used piece of filth! Very gross and very disappointed!

You do have to be careful, but you can't imagine how many trips to the doctor this has saved me, or made me take. It is a lifesaver for me.
Must have for parents
This is a must have in your toolbox as a parent. It is definitely a time and money saver because you don't have to waste trips and co-pay visiting a doctor only for them to tell you that its not an ear infection.
Perfect otoscope for home use
Has a good, bright light and is nice and slender, which is great when using on children. Good speculum sizes.
Easy to tell on an adult
Works well. Comes with the chart to show the difference between a normal ear, and ear infection. Bought this for my 20 month old daughter who has frequent ear infections. Easy to tell on an adult, a little harder to pinpoint this on a child, but most helpful when determining when it is time to go to the doctor
So far so good. Owned very short time
So far so good. Owned very short time. Seems better quality than the plastic one I had years ago. Only thing missing is a case or bag to hold the unit and the different size ends, but that is easy to remedy with a zip lock.
This otoscope works good and does exactly what is described. It comes with batteries and lights up nicely. Thanks Dr. Mom and Amazon!
This is an Every-Mom-Tool!!!
Seriously has saved not only my family-but extended family many trips to the dr. Anytime baby is fussy or some ones ear is hurting-I'm the new family dr. They come to me and I check um out. The instructions come with pictures of what a healthy ear is supposed to look like and then what an ear infection looks like! This is very helpful until you practice enough to be able to recognize on your own!! I LOVE that I can now self diagnose and treat at home the little minor ear aches and recognize the more serious ones. I can now asses whether to drag kids to the dr. Or sit this one out!! This is a EVERY MOM TOOL!!
Not doctors quality but better than wal-mart
No complaints. Cheap but effective. Case is aluminum. Not doctors quality but better than wal-mart.
Great otoscope. As a Family medicine Doctor
Great otoscope. As a Family medicine Doctor, this is a great tool to have at home. Works well, and inexpensive and light so easy to carry in my purse. I'd highly recommend it.

Worked perfect. Confirmed an ear infection so at least we knew the trip to the doctor was worth it.
I can see a little better in the ear but the glass is terrible and very blury light is good and size is nice pieces stay in. Just wish the glass was clearer
Look for another otoscope, this brand didn't impress.
Never worked, returned same day. Also felt cheap in the hand. Not impressed. Purchased the one from zzzzt in orange, very pleased with it!
Great tool. Wish I had one a long time ago!
This little tool is a great thing for looking for ear infections or excessive ear wax. As someone who does not enjoy ear irrigation unless it's needed, this allows my husband to check my ears occasionally to see if it's time. It also allows me to check out son's ears to see if there is a sign of infection. Easy to work. Clear views. Perfect.
Plenty bright. I could see the ear drum immediately. Load the batteries and use it. It's that simple.
Love it, It works better that what you get ...
Love it, It works better that what you get at the local store, durable and works great. Wish had a better light but that is no problem, just use an extra small flash light and is great. From a nurse advise.
Great ear tool!
I bought this as a replacement for a different model that had a cracked ear attachment and kept falling off. It is sleek, lightweight, and comes with the 2 batteries needed. A bonus is that it also uses and LED lightbulb! I am very happy with my purchase, and having already used it, I can confidently recommend it to whoever else is interested in owning an otoscope!
Pass on this one
Def not your Welch Allen otoscope. The LED causes a strong red-reflex and difficulty focusing on the TM in my infant son. It now serves as a pen light.
Item works great. The tips never fall off for us. Sometimes, it's the opposite. The tips sometime stay on too tight but nothing too difficult to remove. We are very happy with this item and use it often. I'm also a medical professional and would recommend this item.
Great tool to have
This is great to have if you have kids or anyone who has ear issues. Easy to use and lasts a long time. This is my second one. The first I had for a couple of years. Can't beat the price.
Great buy for the money.
I have always had a issue with keeping my ears clean. This makes checking my ears super easy, although I have a hard time using it on myself. JK. Now when my wife cleans my ears she is able to see if they are cleaned or need another washing. I wish we would have had this years ago.
We got our otoscope and had fun trying it out on each other! I can clearly see what I need to see and I like the guide they sent along. Though, I think healthy ears look a bit different than what is pictured, but I got the idea. The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because after looking gently in each other's ears and then putting it away carefully, I got it out a couple days later and the light wouldn't work. I eventually got it to work, but it seems a bit fragile. Yes, my children were using it, but I was there overseeing the whole time and nobody was rough with it, but I guess even just a little jiggling will off set the insides enough to cause problems. I won't let my children use it anymore. I wish it was a bit sturdier. I hope it lasts.
This is fantastic! Will save me trips to the doctor when I suspect an ear infection in my kids. It took some practice getting the ear drum into focus but that has nothing to do with the quality of the product. It's great quality and I can see everything!
... husband has some "ear issues" and the otoscope is perfect.

It was exactly as I hoped. Everyone in my house took a turn looking at my inner ear that has been giving me problems.
This is perfect for checking ear infections at home. The LED light is very bright and the variety of tips let me use it on each of my children. My daughters rarely get ear infections, so having this at home to check is very helpful to know when we actually need to get into the doctor. This is a must have in every mom's doctor kit!
