Digital Retinal Photography

A retinal camera is a sophisticated low power microscope with an attached camera designed for fundus photography, that is, creating a photograph of the interior surface of the eye, including the retina, optic disc, macula and posterior pole. This allows your optometrist to gain an improved view than that achieved with standard equipment.

 

Retinal photography can aid in the detection of potentially sight threatening conditions such as                   and                                               as well as highlighting a range of other conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Regular retinal photography is advised as it allows small changes of the retina to be documented which may otherwise be difficult to detect.

 

If you are interested in retinal photography it can be done during your routine eye examination. There may be a small supplementary fee of £10 as retinal photography is not covered by the NHS.

 

This service is currently only available at our Denbigh branch.
