Microscope Slit Lamp Imaging

Here are two samples of photos taken using our slit lamp microscope. Most people have vitreous floaters, which are tiny specks that can be seen in your field of vision, especially when you look at a light-coloured area such as a blue sky or white wall. They are created when tiny threads and clumps form in the clear, jelly-like substance (the vitreous humour) inside the eyeball. Eye floaters are suspended in this ‘jelly’, so they move when your eyeball moves. If you try to look directly at them, the floaters may seem to disappear.
Floaters can come in different sizes and shapes. In most cases, floaters are normal and harmless. However, a sudden increase in their number may indicate damage to particular internal structures of the eye. They were difficult to photograph in the past, however the slit lamp allows allows David to take images of these floaters and make accurate decisions on serious ailments.
