How Does Telemedicine at Lake Nona Opthalmology Work?

Telemedicine can be delivered using video-conferencing, audio communication, and/or text messaging using mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers.

To use telemedicine:

  • You’ll be sent a link to “visit” our office
  • Click the link several minutes before your appointment
  • Be prepared to be on camera with your physician and support staff (such as a medical assistant or nurse)
  • Have a reliable, stable internet connection
