SL Imaging Module – easily capturing high-quality images and videos


Integrated imaging

All ZEISS slit lamps feature the SL Imaging Module, which consists of two components: the SL cam 5.0, a compact, fully integrated 5-megapixel camera, and the SL imaging software. Situated between the tube and the variable magnification changer, the compact SL cam 5.0 becomes one with the slit lamp, capturing superb high-resolution images and videos for documentation.

Applying the expertise

Patient Data Display

Enter data of new patients during the first visit or access patient data already stored in the software. Patients can be assigned a session ID. A commentary box offers space to enter additional information.

Acquisition Display with Camera Settings

The live image is displayed in the acquisition mode. Users can adjust camera settings to suit personal preferences and exam room conditions. For example exposure time and gain for overview and slit images.


Capture Settings

There is an auto-save option for the last captured image or video. Up to 5 images can be recorded by a single capture event. The best images from each series can then be saved manually.

Acquisition Display with Image Memory

All captured images are stored in the “Image Memory” folder. Saved images and videos are marked with a symbol. Additional images and videos can also be stored.

Review Mode with Flicker Tool

The Review Screen displays all saved image data in a patient file, including newly acquired images. In addition, a Flicker Tool enables quick detection of minute changes. For fast assessment of disease progression, two images, e.g. from two separate sessions can be optimally aligned by adjusting scale, rotational angle and position.
