Ian’s photo shortlisted for award

Posted on 09th June 2013

A photo by Ian of a CamOpt patient’s eye has been shortlisted for the BCLA’s photographic competition 2013.

b- lens prolapse

This picture shows the natural lens of the eye (the crystalline lens which gets cataract as you get older) has fallen forward into the front chamber of the eye. It’s a wee bit hard to tell what’s going on unless you revise your eye anatomy, so here goes:

b- anatomy

The lens sits behind the iris, the coloured part of the eye and is attached firmly. In some conditions the attachments weaken. In 99.9% of cases the lens falls backward into the back chamber of the eye and you can’t see it, but in this case, it came forward, through the pupil and is quite visible. It’s amazing to see how sharp and neat a structure it is – it looks a like a man made contact lens.

Ian faces stiff competition from researchers and professional medical photographers, so we shall see. You can view the other entries here
