Retinal Photography

What is retinal photography?

 

Retinal photography is using a specialized camera to take a high-definition digital picture of the retina  (light sensing tissue) in the back of your eyes.  Our office uses the Zeiss Clarus 700 Ultra-Wide Field camera.  

 

Who should have retinal photography?

Retinal photography is a very useful tool for patients of all ages.  The picture is safe and quick.  All you will notice is a very bright flash of light in each eye. 

 

What are the benefits of having retinal photography?

 

  • The doctor will review your images with you and go over any important findings

  • The images can be stored for the future as a comparison if your health changes

  • The images can be magnified and manipulated to allow the doctor greater visibility of your retina

  • The camera provides a view of the retina in patients who otherwise may not be able to have a thorough exam.
