Wide Field Retinal Photography
Another major breakthrough in detecting and documenting ocular pathology, the Eidon wide-field fundus camera gives high-resolution retinal images, far superior to standard retinal cameras, without the need for dilation. It uses white light, compared to the monochromatic lasers of conventional scanning systems, which therefore gives true colour evaluation. It can photograph up to 150 degrees (as opposed to the standard 30 degrees) and is especially important in evaluating diabetic retinopathy, and for assessing retinal integrity when flashes and/or floaters suddenly appear suggesting a possible detachment. The procedure is quick, straightforward and non-invasive.
We can carry out Wide-field photography after your eye examination or book you in for a separate appointment if required. Ask our staff for more details.
