Slit lamp classification system

J Am Optom Assoc. 1987 Mar;58(3):198-201.


A slit lamp classification system is presented which follows the same divisions as the FDA Slit Lamp Classification System but expands the number of categories. It also differs in that there is an orderly progression of the various findings and a numbering system which allows for easy statistical analysis. In this way, the incidence of findings may be grouped according to degree of severity, and may be easily compared across different categories.
