Photo Slit Lamp Biomicrography
Csaba Martonyi, FOPS
The Slit Lamp Biomicroscope is the cornerstone of information acquisition in determining the condition of the eye, especially that of the anterior segment. An appropriately equipped instrument will also provide photo documentation of a wide range of findings. Numerous lighting techniques plus magnification help clinicians see the invisible within transparent media such as the cornea and lens, and amazing detail within other structures. This lecture will concentrate on these lighting techniques, basic anatomy of the anterior segment, and specialty procedures such as gonioscopy and vital dyes. After this course the student will be able to properly illuminate and photograph the cornea, iris and lens, and name key anatomical structures of the anterior segment of the eye.

Anterior Segment Application
Brandon Ayres, MD
Anterior Segment OCT’s longer wave length of light allows deeper penetration of tissues, resulting in higher resolution of images in the anterior segment. Imaging of the anterior segment allows for easier and more accurate diagnosis and management of disease. The ability to obtain high definition images of the anterior segment is now critical in surgical decision making and in surgical planning. This course will compare time domain and spectral domain anterior segment OCT. It will address hardware, imaging technique and data interpretation. Clinical applications will be discussed for the following topics: Evaluation of corneal and anterior segment pathology, refractive evaluations, cataract planning, endothelial keratoplasty, and more. At the conclusion of this course, students will be knowledgeable of several anterior segment imaging modalities and have a greater understanding of how they can be clinically helpful.

Taylor Pannell, CRA, OCT-C
This lecture will walk through different types of gonio lenses, imaging /lighting techniques, and patient management tips for all skill levels with this imaging technique. You will be shown the proper way to apply and remove a lens while keeping your patient calm and comfortable. After this class the student will have the knowledge to confidently perform gonioscopy photos.
