Imaging of the eye is critical to improving the diagnosis, assessment of severity and progression, and evaluation of management of eye disease. Advances have been rapid, with improvements in hardware (such as light sources and imaging chips), optics (such as adaptive aberration compensation) and software (such as image tracking). The technology and clinical application of ocular imaging techniques of photography, Scheimpflug imaging, scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, scanning laser polarimetry, ultrasonography, optical coherence tomography, confocal scanning microscopy and MRI are reviewed.
