Anterior Segment Imaging
Anterior segment imaging records photos and video of vital components of the front of the eye and from within the eye. The structures of the eye that can be imaged including the cornea, eyelids and deep within the eye including the lens of the eye and the internal drainage components that regulate eye pressure.
Using a specialised illuminated slit-lamp microscope fitted with a high definition camera, various conditions that effect the eye can be monitored and reviewed with accuracy. The images obtained can be stored for future comparison or shared with ophthalmologists or GP's.
Common eye conditions that can be imaged include cataract, pytergium, corneal infections and trauma, dry eye, eyelid abnormalities and the internal drainage system of the eye.
