Anterior Eye Imaging
Anterior eye imaging involves the use of a special camera built into the optometrists’ slit-lamp microscope allowing detailed, high resolution videos and photographs of the front of the eye (eyelids, eye lashes, cornea etc.) to be collected. This is useful in monitoring conditions such as blepharitis, styes, dry eye and conjunctivitis, and is particularly useful in monitoring more serious eyelid and corneal disorders.
Anterior eye imaging is a quick and painless procedure. It involves the optometrist inspecting the eye with a microscope which produces a beam of bright light. The process of image capturing involves no flash, unlike conventional cameras.Back Next
