Retinal photography

The traditional method of examining the health of the eye involves shining a light into your eye using a hand held instrument, however this enables our Opthamologists to see only a very small area of the back of the eye at any one time. By moving your eyes in different directions we are able to create an image of the whole retina. Notes and small diagrams are then used to record this information.


This method has been an effective method of diagnosis for many years however a photograph obviously gives a better record than a written description, and the increased magnification enables features to be viewed on the back of the eye that may not be seen under normal viewing conditions.
