Conventionally, fundus camera is the only source for taking retinal images. With the advent of smartphones, fundus photography has become more portable, simpler, cheaper, and easier. Various techniques of fundus imaging with smartphones were put forth in the last decade. Senior ophthalmologists always prefer using a direct ophthalmoscope (DO) for viewing the fundus. DO has the advantage of viewing magnified images giving no scope in missing findings. We illustrate the use of a smartphone and a DO in recording patient's facial details, distant direct ophthalmoscopy apart from taking images of normal/pathological lesions of the optic disc, vessels, and retina in the form of a videograph or photograph. This technique is extremely useful for training purposes, bedside-imaging as in intensive care unit/wards, in remote areas such as camps, creating patient awareness, counseling, monitoring the progression, documentation, sharing, and cross consultation. These advantages are being utilized in our institute since 2014.
