Retinal Photography

Retinal photography is a diagnostic imaging technique that involves capturing detailed images of the retina, the thin layer of tissue in the back of the eye that is responsible for transmitting visual information to the brain.

A camera with a specialized lens is used to take high-resolution pictures of the retina, which helps to detect and monitor various eye conditions. This type of imaging can provide a detailed look at the retina, including the structures of the macula, optic nerve, and blood vessels, allowing identification of areas of damage, inflammation, or disease.

Retinal photography is commonly used in the diagnosis and management of conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and retinal detachment. The procedure is generally quick and painless, and patients typically only experience a bright flash of light as the image is captured.
