Anterior segment imaging in pediatric ophthalmology.

Author information

University of Toronto, Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.


Anterior segment imaging in the pediatric population using commercially available equipment is rewarding but can be challenging. Successful imaging requires familiarity with the imaging modality used, a positive attitude, and the ability to quickly develop rapport with children. In this review, we demonstrate how external and slitlamp photography, Scheimpflug imaging, handheld digital fundus camera, ultrasound biomicroscopy, and anterior segment optical coherence tomography can be valuable in the documentation, diagnosis, and management of pediatric anterior segment disease. Families understand their child's disease process when it is demonstrated photographically and feel more motivated and involved in their care. Compliance with treatment is often enhanced through this process.
