CET workshop: Slit lamp imaging



Short description

Are you using all the capabilities of your slit lamp for the benefit of your patients? This interactive workshop will provide a head to toe overview of the latest generation slit lamp, reviewing the use of new features such as the infrared imaging of the meibomian glands and amber filters for examination of the fundus. The regular use of slit lamp imaging helps practitioners achieve best practice in terms of record keeping, and greatly aids communication with patients. This workshop will work through a series of top tips to help you optimise your pictures and videos, to ensure that they provide a true record of your clinical findings, allowing the monitoring of change over time. These will include use of a background illuminator, lighting techniques, meibography, the advantages of video recording of clinical findings, using filters and more. Read more>
