Introduction to Anterior Segment Disorders

The anterior segment of the eye usually refers to the cornea, iris, and lens. Most of the anterior segment conditions can be diagnosed clinically with a slit lamp.

However, even without a slit lamp, many anterior segment signs can be picked up using a torch together with close observation alone. This is particularly important as many potentially blinding conditions are caused by systemic diseases and it is important to pick these signs up early.
