Thus, the feature of interest is being illuminated by side-scattering of light from the optic section. e. parallelepiped or broad beam). Retroillumination This refers to any technique in which light is reflected from the iris, anterior lens surface or retina, and is used to backilluminate a section of the cornea, which is more anteriorly positioned. The illumination and observation systems can be adjusted so that the feature of interest in the cornea is seen against a light background (such as a light coloured iris) or a dark background (such as a dark coloured iris, or the pupil in the case of indirect retroillumination).

A digital image may be characterized in three main ways: • The image resolution refers to the image dimensions (width × height) in units of the number of dots (pixels). Common resolutions are 640 × 480 or 1280 × 960, although larger images from digital still cameras are common. • The colour depth is the number of colours that may be specified for each pixel. For true colour, this should be in the thousands or millions. • The file format for an image describes the way it is saved on disk and affects its compatibility with different programs for viewing, e-mailing, etc.

In addition, some of these instruments allow corneal thickness to be determined by measuring the distance between the epithelium and endothelium. Typically, the features looked for are the regularity of the endothelial mosaic, the size of the individual cells, the presence of intracellular vacuoles, and abnormal features such as corneal guttae and keratic precipitates. From the images obtained, factors such as the number of cells per unit area, cell shape and cell area can be calculated, enabling the clinician to assess the endothelial appearance compared with that expected of normal age-matched individuals.
