Abstract

A new method is described for obtaining cross-sectional images of the anterior chamber. Photographs are obtained with a Scheimpflug slit-lamp camera. After cornea, iris, and lens surfaces are digitized, mathematical corrections are made for the camera distortion and for the refractive effects of the cornea. The reproducibility and accuracy of the method were tested and found to be adequate for clinical study of human eyes in physiologic or diseased states.
