The Ophthalmic Photography Department provides photographic documentation of ophthalmic patient pathology and diseases for use in patient care, teaching, and research.


The Ophthalmic Photography Department serves pediatric, adult, and geriatric inpatients and outpatients. There are stationary cameras for patient care within the department, as well as portable camera units to accommodate the patients in the operating theater, sedation rooms, emergency room, inpatient rooms, or anywhere else a physician may request photography for a patient who cannot be relocated to the photography facility. All film processing is conducted to the standards set forth by Eastman Kodak Company. We follow the guidelines established by the Ophthalmic Photographers Society, the professional organization for ophthalmic photographers worldwide.
