Default There must be a way!

I'm certain this is a stupid question, but I can't find the answer.

Is there a way to prevent faces or vertices on the BACK of an obect from being selected when working on the front?

Currently I have to check and remove the unwanted components.

It's a real pain, especially when I miss some.

I recall something about 'camera' selection, only what the camera can actually 'see' rather than all through the object.

Thanks,
Rob
