Retinal photography is a painless and efficient method our optometrists use to examine your eye and monitor changes in your eye health and vision. With the use of a fundus camera, we capture high-resolution, colored 2D images of your retina—the tissue at the back of your eye. These images are electronically stored, allowing us to track any changes in your eye health over time, even before noticeable symptoms arise.

What can Retinal Photography detect?

Digital retinal photography is instrumental in detecting various eye diseases in their early stages, including:

  • Diabetic changes or retinopathy

  • Glaucoma

  • Age-related macular degeneration

  • Retinal vascular changes

  • Retinal detachment

When should you have Retinal Photography?

Retinal photography is typically performed during your comprehensive eye exam. However, if you experience any changes in your vision or vision loss, your optometrist may utilize this technique to identify any potential eye conditions that could harm your retina. This allows for early intervention, appropriate treatment, and preventive strategies. We recommend that all our patients undergo this test as part of their annual or biennial eye exam, particularly those with a personal history of diabetes, hypertension, or high cholesterol.
