Presented by Dr Keyur Patel and Nicola Bennett on 30 September 2021, 7:00pm - 8:00pm.  This webinar is sponsored by Topcon.

This presentation aims to improve the 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.

Anterior Segment imaging is well established in corneal subspecialty 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.

Session is approved for 1 interactive CET point (C-78357) for Optom, DO, and CLO.  You will be asked to submit your GOC number at time of registration. You must attend the full live session and complete all the MCQ's during the live webinar session to receive any applicable CET points. Please allow up to 10 days from the date of the webinar to receive your point.
