The 2022 Comprehensive Eye Care Section Annual Ocular Photography Contest received 170 image submissions. The submissions were divided into anterior and posterior segment categories, which received 82 and 88 submissions, respectively. Grand prizes were awarded for the anterior and posterior segment categories, followed by four honorable mentions from the combined submissions. Submissions were graded in seven categories, each assigned a numerical value between 1 and 10: focus, exposure, field of view, difficulty of capturing image, absence of distracting elements, lighting and visual impact (wow! factor). The total scores from eleven optometrist judges were averaged to determine the winners.
Special thanks to our judges: Elyse Chaglasian, Alissa Coyne, Crystal DeLuca, Amy Huddleston McDaniel, Caryn LaBuda, Alexis Malkin, Devina Patel, Mollie Saxon, Abby Tang, Karen Wadhams, and Bryan Wolynski.
