Retinal imaging detect a variety of eye diseases, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal detachment.

Retinal imaging involves taking a picture of the back of your eye, including the retina (where light and images are absorbed), optic disk (a spot on the retina where the optic nerve communicates with the brain), and blood vessels. Retinal imaging is used to diagnose diseases as well as check for overall eye health.

detecting early signs of disease

Retinal imaging is a valuable tool for diagnosing and monitoring a variety of eye diseases. It can be used to detect early signs of disease, track the progression of the disease, and assess the effectiveness of treatment. Retinal imaging can also help identify other health conditions that may be affecting the eyes, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Early detection and diagnosis of these diseases is essential for preserving vision and preventing further damage to the eyes. 

What Happens During the Test?

The doctor may dilate your eyes with special drops to widen your pupils. You will be asked to sit in a chair and rest your chin on support. You will be instructed to look at a target, such as a light or fixation point, while the camera takes pictures of your retina. The entire process usually takes less than 30 minutes.

Once your pupils have returned to their normal size, you can resume your normal activities. If your eyes are still dilated, be sure to wear sunglasses and avoid driving until the effects have worn off.
