We are able to provide a hi-tech digital photography service which uses a powerful camera to photograph the back of the eye (the retina).
It is our latest tool to help screen for early signs of eye disease, such as blood vessel changes in Diabetes and optic nerve changes in Glaucoma, as well as many other conditions.
Photography is an enhancement to current screening methods, as even small abnormalities can be detected or confirmed and a permanent record kept for future reference to check for change.
Eye drops are not usually necessary for the procedure, which is quick and painless – just a gentle light flash into each eye.
The service is available from our practice for a small charge and can be arranged after your routine eye test. Just ask the examining Optometrist for more details.
