We take a retinal image using digital photography of the back of your eye.
This image is used by your optometrist to closely examine changes in the blood vessels of the retina and allow retinal issues to be monitored effectively.
The image gives your optometrist a lot of information about your optic nerve, your retinal blood vessels and the area where you do your detailed focusing – the macula.
Retinal imaging provides the ability to compare your images over time to monitor your eye health and help detect any changes that may be occurring. This is especially important to track changes in conditions such as glaucoma and macula degeneration.
The imaging is simple and painless, and usually eye drops are not required.
