Abstract: Anterior Segment imaging is well established in corneal subspeciality ophthalmology clinics. The detailed, high resolution images and 3D view can be useful in practice for record keeping, diagnosis and management of corneal conditions.

With this increasing reliance on Digital Imaging for record keeping, tele-medicine, Patient and Colleague education it is vital to be able to take images that accurately reflect what is sitting in the chair.
Technological advances, automation and point and shoot generation has meant that the basic skills needed to manipulate your digital device for optimal record keeping is a fast fading skill set.
This lecture aims to improve the Attendees understanding of the basic principles of photography and how to apply this to knowledge in practice to ensure that optimal clinical images are recorded with a slit lamp(mounted) camera
