Cameras, Photographic, Ophthalmic

Definition : Photographic cameras designed to obtain still images of the eye. Typically several photographs are taken with the camera close to the eye. These cameras usually include one or more lenses positioned in the front of the camera, a shutter button that operates the camera and frequently also triggers a light flash, and controls to modify the focus, optical zoom, and time. The camera also includes a film or an image sensor for film and digital cameras respectively. Ophthalmic cameras are used to provide diagnostic data of eye conditions; dedicated ophthalmic cameras are available to obtain pictures as well as to document the pathology of the ocular fundus and associated blood vessels (i.e., fundus cameras).
