Ophthalmology & Smartphone Technology with Dr. Vallone

Lucien V. Vallone, DVM, DACVO, Texas A&M University


In this episode, host Beckie Mossor, RVT, is joined by Lucien Vallone, DVM, DACVO, to unpack his recent Clinician’s Brief article, “Smartphone Technology in Clinical Ophthalmology.” Not tech savvy? Not a problem. Dr. Vallone makes it easy by first defining technical terms; then, he delivers quick tips for great ophthalmic images captured with a smartphone. He discusses indications for using a direct or indirect fundoscopy technique, whether there are instances in which the fundus should not or cannot be photographed, and when to reserve smartphone imaging for the fundic examination or if other portions of the examination can benefit from this technical tactic. He also addresses how to record these images in patient records.
