Question ophthalmoscopy/ fundoscopy on USMLE CS exam

Hi,
I have a question regarding fundoscopy on the exam.
I can do it in real life (and of course used it on my work). BUT! It is very time consuming procedure and usually in real life you try to perform fundoscopy "as is" without any preparation. And if the pupil is very small and there is difficult to see anything you use atropine like medication and repeat it again etc...
My study partner and I performed couple test on real persons (our nurses from hospital). Well people said that they can clearly distinguish fake fundoscopy from "real" one. They said kind of, "there are different shinning in my eyes".
So you really don't enough time to perform the fundoscopy and see all fields in other hands SP can detect really fake fundoscopy, we need to find gold middle.

Question is: how to do fundoscopy in THE USMLE CS exam?

Just focus on the retina for 3 secs LLL RRR
You can also add in the pupillary light reflex

You must ask for photophobia and do the tests properly for the pupillary light reflex and retinal exam
