Fundus photography plays an important role in the documentation and follow‑up of retinal diseases. In this era of high-speed communication using mobile devices, a smartphone‑based imaging device may be useful in teleophthalmology and in documenting anterior as well as posterior segment changes at peripheral centres. A cost‑effective device can empower ophthalmologists all over the world to document changes and to effectively consult with peers over secured cross-platform messaging services. The advantages of such a device are its low cost, portability, and multimodal setup (slit lamp mounted as well as a handheld). In addition, there are advantages that are specific to the mobile technology that smartphone‑based imaging devices have, especially connectivity options such asWi‑Fi and 4G, that allow transmission of images for Teleophthalmology consultation. This video highlights the capabilities of smartphone imaging in clinical practice including Teleophthalmology.
