The advances developed in smartphones allow among multiples functions its use in optometry and ophthalmology consultations. Until recently, the only option to realize pictures in the slit lamp was to adapt a camera. However, the development of smartphones allows by means of an adapter or system connected to slit lamp acquire images or videos of the structures of the eyeball viewed through of the oculars. Precisely, the adapter or system connected to the slit lamp in consultation provides better alignment in the acquisition of the images compared with the obtained without adaptation system. Moreover, its manipulation is easier and minimizes the economic cost compared with cameras attached to the slit lamp. Concretely, in Pubmed Central database have been published various national and international scientific articles on smartphones adapted to slit lamp in consultation, considered promising for teleophthalmology. Indeed, the access to an ophthalmologist specialist in rural, isolated, inaccessible as in urban areas at distant allows that teleophthalmology acquires major popularity due to the improvement in the care quality of the patients. Concretely, teleophthalmology is useful for the diagnosis of the ocular surface, retina, crystalline lens, cornea or conjunctiva pathologies mainly. Likewise, teleophthalmology reduces the travel costs, provides greater monitoring of ocular pathologies in real time, as also allows an earlier clinical assessment, among other advantages...
The images obtained with smartphones or even tablets by means of an adapter or system connected to slit lamp in optometry and ophthalmology consultations allows that be possible to provide quality information to the population about visual education. Precisely, from our international project ConsultoriaVisual.com, we plan content marketing and social media strategies with the aim to spread the specialties from optical establishments, ophthalmological clinics, and hospitals in all Spanish speaking countries. Our custom strategies will allow increasing the knowledge to the population about the importance of periodic visual explorations by means of the slit lamp. Likewise, from our international project we edit contents in postgraduate courses and master’s degrees from the universities with the aim to provide more information about the education programs to the academic community. Our content generation strategies will improve the visibility in social networks, as well as significantly will improve the web positioning naturally. Through our strategies, the specialties of the online projects of ophthalmology, optometry and optics will be more visible.
