Retinal photography is used by an optometrist to view the back of the eye in order to detect the early signs of an eye health problem. By taking photographs of the retina at each eye examination we can keep a permanent and accurate record of the condition of the retina. This allows us to detect any changes in the eye between each examination which might indicate:
- Age related macular degeneration
Use of retinal photography allows you to see what we see – your optometrist will show you the image of your retina and discuss the findings with you.
Gardiner Opticians have invested in the latest retinal camera equipment. We recommend that retinal photography is carried out for all patients over 40 or if a patient’s medical history indicates it may be suitable.
