Third Generation Dr Mom Slimline Stainless LED Pocket Otoscope

Never worry about a burned out bulb again!

Patent Pending Design


An Incredible Value in an Otoscope. It makes use of the Light Emitting Diode (LED) as it's light source for a superior view inside the ear. There is no otoscope on the market today that can compare at this price!

Why LED? The energy efficiency and durability of this otoscope is simply amazing. The LED light source has no filament to break like a conventional incandescent powered otoscope. The otoscope light source is impervious to shock since it does not contain a fragile filament like an incandescent light bulb. You will be absolutely amazed by the amount of light created by the LED bulb. The light produced by this otoscope is full spectrum and not the yellow light typically created by incandescent light bulbs on other otoscopes. With a light emitting diode there is no fragile filament to break so it can withstand repeated dropping or rough handling. The halogen bulbs found on other otoscopes burn very hot and eat battery power, they are also very fragile and easily damaged.

The Dr. Mom Slimline LED Otoscope provides one incredible value for the price! The otoscope was engineered to specifications created by a pediatrician and a long-experienced emergency room physician. This premium quality medical instrument employs a light emitting diode (LED) as its light source, for superior light and an extraordinarily clear view of the ear canal and eardrum. There is simply no otoscope on the market that can compare to it, that will perform like it, for anything like the price of the Dr. Mom Slimline LED Otoscope!

We offer a 30 Day Money back guarantee and a one year warranty that even includes the light source. Please try this otoscope. You have nothing to lose. Just imagine how good it will feel to catch your child's ear infection in it's earliest stages and avoid the 2 AM trip to the emergency room with a child suffering the agonizing pain of a full blown ear infection. This otoscope was designed with just this purpose in mind and from the feedback we have received we can tell you it does it's job very well.

(Includes 2 AAA Batteries, and 3 Reusable Specula - 2.5mm infant, 3mm child and 4mm adult, and a weblink to high resolution photos and instructions written by an ER Physician. We also offer standard disposable specula that work well with our otoscope, see below.)

Hello, I just needed to order another otoscope because my bulb on my original model burned out so I am trying the stainless LED this time.  I just felt that I needed to say that because of this otoscope, I had the opportunity to insist that there was a problem in my son's ear.  It took me many doctor visits and getting to the right doctor at MY persistence.  My son was found to have a very severe cholesteatoma.  All other doctors would say it was dried wax!!  I had the ability to say that I could see in there and that I knew that something was not right.  The doctors don't particularly like that you can tell them there is a problem.  I don't care, this may have saved his life!!  He had to have reconstruction in his ear and 2 of the 3 hearing bones were destructed.  Fortunately the doctor I went to was able to put a prosthesis in place and he has functioning hearing.  I am told that these aren't very common anymore and that they are from untreated ear infections.  This was not the case for us, he had been treated pretty much chronically since he was 2 weeks old.  He has allergies and reflux which I think got him into this situation in the first place.  This is a great tool to have for anyone who suffers ear infections, but is NOT a replacement for medical attention.  Remember as a mom, you know your child better than anyone else and if you say there is a problem, most likely your instincts are right. Thank you for the opportunity for us to have this otoscope at a very affordable price!!  Believe me, my son has a very bad situation, it could have been a whole lot worse had I not had the otoscope to look for myself and allot of persistence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best otoscope in its class by a mile, December 12, 2009
By  Lisa Sullivan (Saint Charles, MO, US) - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am both a Family Nurse Practitioner FNP and a Mom and I can say in my honest opinion this is a really good little otoscope. I initially purchased a Dr Mom otoscope to keep with me when I travel.
My daughter has been prone to ear infections since she started school. I guess it is all the viruses she is exposed to that have gotten this problem started. It never seems to fail that when we travel for holidays she invariably starts complaining about her ears. I would be away from my office otoscope so I would end up having to take her in to an urgent clinic or an ER just so someone could get a look at her This was expensive as well as time consuming. Once I found this wonderful little otoscope I can now travel and never worry about my inability to check my daughters tympanic membrane for the earliest signs of redness. This has been a Godsend especially considering how well this little otoscope works. The light is just as bright as expensive name brand otoscope I use at my office. The view of the tympanic membrane is every bit as clear as what I see with my $300 professional otoscope yet this otoscope is small and compact and travels very nicely in my purse. I now recommend this otoscope in my practice to parents who have children with chronic ear infections. Do I recommend it to all I have some parents I would worry about their ability to stick a CDRom in a computer let alone an otoscope in their child's ear. On the other hand there are other parents who I am sure will become just as proficient as myself at looking into ears if given enough time to practice and learn. Actually many have become just as good at diagnosing early ear infections and seem to be right on 99.9% of the time when they bring their child in for me to confirm what they are seeing. Once I can feel comfortable with a parent I then often just call them in some medication when they call the office reporting fluid and or redness of the eardrum in their child complaining of ear discomfort. I guess the thing I need to say is that even with an otoscope that works well there is a learning curve involved in knowing how to get the information you need using it. There are no bells and whistles that begin playing just by sticking the instrument in a child's ear that has an ear infection. You have to practice and become proficient in knowing what normal is and then you will begin to recognize when things are not looking right. This takes time, patience, and some work. There are also some ear canals that you can't see into no matter what due to excessive ear wax or debris. Bottom line if you are motivated to learn to do ear exams this is a wonderful little device if you do not have an inclination and willingness to put some work into learning then an otoscope is a waste of your time and money no matter how functional the otoscope may be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Otoscope, January 24, 2009

By  Meredith James RN (Atlanta Georgia) - See all my reviews
I absolutely love my Dr Mom Otoscope. I have owned it over 3 years now and it has worked flawlessly. I am purchasing 3 more to give away as gifts. The light is extremely bright and I can see my childrens eardrums very clearly. My older daughter had a 2 year period where she was plagued with ear infections. I put the otoscope to very good use and it saved me several trips to her pediatrician. I could see when an ear infection was just beginning to take hold and I would call her pediatrician and let her know my daughters eardrum was getting red and she would call in some medication which would nip things in the bud.
Luckily my older daughter has seemed to out grow the ear infections but now her younger brother is going through similar problems.
The otoscope is lightweight and sturdy and comes with three specula and batteries. It came in a nice re-usable clamshell case that also contained instructions with pictures.
I have been very happy with my purchase.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value , November 17, 2008
By  Don James MD (Long Island, NY) - See all my reviews
I ordered this otoscope along with a larger professional model otoscope for office use. I purchased this otoscope to use as an inexpensive pocket model I could keep in my coat pocket during hospital rounds. I have to say I am extremely impressed with how well it works and how clearly I can visualize the tympanic membrane on both adult and pediatric patients. The otoscope is very light weight and comes with a pocket clip to keep it securely in your pocket when not in use. I have used it over 4 1/2 months on a fairly regular basis and still have not had to replace the batteries. The LEAD light is extremely bright and also works well for doing an oral-pharyngeal examination. Overall I rate the otoscope a very good value for the money spent. It has saved me lots of time not spent running all over the nurses station looking for a flashlight and otoscope when doing an initial physical exam on a newly hospitalized patient. Definitely well worth the small price I paid for the instrument.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very Impressive Otoscope, July 24, 2008
I must say I love this otoscope and am definitely impressed. I can see the eardrum every bit as clear as I can with my larger Professional W/A Otoscope (very expensive) not to mention it also clips neatly in my pocket. So far I have owned it over 6 months and I have yet to replace the batteries (I have used it fairly frequently). The battery savings alone should be substantial over time since it uses the LED light. The only complaint I have is that it took me a bit to figure out how the disposable specula fit on the otoscope. At first I thought these would not work but I was trying to place them over the re-usable specula that came with the otoscope. I finally decided to look at the directions (I am a man) and now I understand how these fit. I guess the intent was mainly to market this otoscope to home users who would just clean the 3 sizes of specula that come with it to be re-used again. The disposable specula do not slip on as easily as my pocket Welch Allyn model but for the price and other advantages this otoscope offers I am still very happy with my purchase. I have not found a small portable otoscope anywhere that works as well as this one and being a medic portable is what I need. Also nice that LED lights are impervious to shock or sudden movement unlike halogen bulbs.
5.0 out of 5 stars Essential equipment for parents, January 8, 2008
By  Buzz (Nashville, TN) - See all my reviews
We have three young children and one of them is prone to ear infections. The symptoms are sneaky and running to the doctor every time we suspect an infection just isn't practical. For a few years, we had a cheapo drugstore otoscope. It was cheap to begin with and never worked all that well. However, it did help us diagnose a few ear infections.
The Dr. Mom Otoscope is a HUGE leap forward. It is very bright and very clear. My only regret is that we didn't find this and buy it earlier!
I give this my highest recommendation. 
5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive otoscope for the price, November 16, 2007
By  Techie Dave (Texas Tech) - See all my reviews
I was almost shocked at how well I could see my wifes eardrum with this nifty little tool. I could even see the little boney thing laying on the inside of the eardrum that I remeber studying in Biology 10 years ago in college. The light was exceptionally bright, actually it was an almost blinding light when I took off the cone and looked directly into it. It is also nice to know the bulb will last forever. My sister bought an ear scope from Walgreens to use to check her childrens ears and it went out after about 2 months and she could not find anywhere to buy a new bulb. She had to just dispose of it. She is the one that found this model and told me about it. I am very happy with my purchase.
I also want to add that I could not see my daughters eardrum as clearly as my wifes but it was more of a problem with the fact her ear canals seemed fairly small and she seemed have have alot more earwax blocking my view.
BEST OTOSCOPE EVER!, September 6, 2007
By  Charlotte Brewer "book lover" (Homestead, FL United States) - See all my reviews
This product arrived promptly and is so much better than I had anticipated. I used to have a big heavy one that was quite expensive and heavy as well. It stopped working; I didn't know where to have it repaired...then looking on the internet I saw this Dr Mom instrument with the lifetime guarantee. We have used it a lot and recommend it highly!
Dr Mom LED Pocket Otoscope, March 19, 2007
By  J. Petescia "Twin mom" (San Diego, CA USA) - See all my reviews
I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend it highly to anyone. I had bought a cheaper version at CVS for $10 but it broke twice and I just gave up on it. I went searching the web and came across this item and was sold. Once I received it and used it, i was even more impressed. The light is fantastic and I was able to see into my toddlers ears with no problems. If you have small kids that get a lot of ear infections or a lot of wax build up, you need to get this item.
Love this otoscope, February 5, 2007
I really like this otoscope. The light is exceptionaly bright and the stuff you see in the ear is crystal clear. The instruction sheet that came with the otoscope is also very good. Amazing that the bulb will never wear out and is warrantied for life if it ever does. The bulb on my welch allyn pocket otoscope cost more than this entire otoscope and I am replacing it every 5 or 6 months.
Very nice product all the way around!
