Photographic documentation of various ophthalmic pathologies is helpful both in the assessment of disease progression or regression and in explaining the same to patients or their families.[1] In centers having no anterior and posterior segment camera facilities, smartphones can be put to good use in ophthalmology. With newer phones coming with two or more cameras, the 2× zoom option works well for taking anterior segment images.[2] The illumination can be provided by the illumination system of the slit lamp. The following images [Figure 1] have been taken by keeping the smartphone camera lens parallel with the slit-lamp eye piece, with the beam providing either diffuse or slit illumination. This works with any smartphone camera with a 2× zoom option, thus negating the need for any extra attachments.
Figure 1: (a) Anterior segment of right eye of a 36-year-old female showing medium size keratic precipitates (red arrow) with seclusio pupillae with iris nodules (the photograph has been taken with smartphone OnePlus 9R Snapdragon 870 Octa-core model – LE2101) (b) Anterior segment of left eye of a 36-year-old female showing mutton fat keratic precipitates (purple arrow) with seclusio pupillae with iris nodules (the photograph has been taken with smartphone OnePlus 9R Snapdragon 870 Octa-core model – LE2101) (c) Anterior segment of right eye of a 35-year-old male showing traumatic mydriasis with rosette cataract (red arrow) (the photograph has been taken with smartphone OnePlus 9R Snapdragon 870 Octa-core model – LE2101) (d) Anterior segment of right eye of a 68-year-old female showing dilated pupil with neovascularization of iris (black arrow) and ectropion uveae (black asterisk) (the photograph has been taken with smartphone OnePlus 9R Snapdragon 870 Octa-core model – LE2101)

Here, in this report, we highlight the usage of smartphones to obtain high-definition clear images of the anterior segment even in remote centers where anterior and posterior segment imaging facilities are scarce.
