AUGUSTA, Ga. – Mike Stanley, Chief Ophthalmic Photographer for the Department of Ophthalmology at the Medical College of Georgia at Georgia Health Sciences University, has won first place for a series of fluorescein angiogram images in the annual Ophthalmic Photographers’ Society competition.
Fluorescein angiogram is used to diagnose vascular problems in the two back layers of the eye. Stanley’s winning images were of a patient with diabetic retinopathy.
Also, Stanley’s image of avellino corneal dystrophy, a genetic disorder in which material collects in the cornea, was featured on the cover of the special issue of EyeNet Magazine produced for the recent annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
Stanley has been a member of the Ophthalmic Photographers’ Society, which represents 1,100 photographers from 27 countries, since 1987. Last year he won first place for his Eye as Art print.
The graduate of Southern Illinois University has worked at MCG for 26 years.
