A Clinical Short Primer Slit Lamp Imaging: Getting the Best Picture For almost 100 years the slit lamp has been used clinically primarily as a device that allows the user to observe the transparent structures of the eye. In addition it can provide a magnified, stereoscopic view of almost the entire eye. The recording of the image observed through the slit lamp was first introduced over forty years ago but these analogue photo slit lamps were usually the domain of the professional ophthalmic photog- rapher. The recent digital revolution has seen a switch from conventional film to digital media...

A Clinical Short Primer Figure 1 Background Illumination The dynamic range of some cameras is improving, but to help produce a more realistic looking image, and to provide some extra light energy to the sensor, a background, or fill illumination light source can significantly improve image quality. Background illumination is generally delivered to the eye as diffuse light from a small exit source to minimize reflections. This light is normally variable by means of an aperture control and this variation assists in creating the required balance between slit illumination and background detail. Creating...

A Clinical Short Primer Figure 5 get in and out of the eye on a different path. With most systems a pupil diameter of at least 4mm will be required but generally the wider the pupil the better the image. The slit lamp should then be arranged so that the slit illumination and the microscope objective to which the camera is attached are aligned coaxially. The red reflex should be visible but the corneal reflex will compromise the view. Defocusing the slit to the edge of the pupil will move the central reflex and improve the image. Small movements of the slit illuminator can be used to optimize the...

A Clinical Short Primer Digital Stereo Photography with the Photo Slit Lamp Biomicroscope The modern slit lamp biomicroscope provides a magnified, three dimensional view of the eye. The ophthalmic photographer's challenge is to record this three dimensional The slit lamp examination produces a single mental composite image that includes height, width, and, of crucial importance - depth. The third derstanding certain structural relationships, without which, considerably less informative. Similarly, stereo slit lamp pho- tography is far more effective in describing certain conditions single, two...

This takes up valuable time of both the practitioner and the patient. It also leads to a rapid build-up of images to be sorted through on the hard drive. However, a new imaging system includes features that make this a thing...
