IACLE Image of the Month

Would you like to share your best clinical images with other IACLE members and gain recognition for your skills?

IMAGE OF THE MONTH is a new monthly feature to highlight your photographic skills. From January 2018, each month’s Global Members Newsletter will feature an image added to our new IACLE Image Collection. At the end of the year the IACLE Education Team will award the IMAGE OF THE YEAR.

Each year’s collection will be accessible exclusively to IACLE members via our Online Resources to use in their teaching. Images can illustrate any topic related to contact lenses and anterior eye.

Apoorv Paranjpe from Pune, India submitted the image below, taken with a Samsung Galaxy J7 Max under slit-lamp Illumination.

Silicone oil used in vitreoretinal surgery had shifted to the anterior chamber with which patient was not satisfied cosmetically (left).

Secondary surgery to remove silicone oil was not recommended by the ophthalmologist. Although the patient had no functional vision in this eye, instead of giving a dark pupil lens a clear pupil lens was dispensed (right), since PLPR (perception of light and projection of rays) was present.
