      Abstract

      A combination video and photographic slit lamp manufactured by Rodenstock with a special light source by Storz has been described. Primarily a research instrument because of the expense of the light source, the video system, when properly adjusted, provides useful records of certain procedures and pathology and is an excellent teaching tool. The photographic attachment provides excellent quality, high resolution 35 mm documentation of anterior segment disease and pathology.
