Digital Retinal Photography

Examining the health of your eyes is one of the most important aspects of your eye test.

We offer digital retinal photography, as it allows your optometrist to view a detailed digital picture of the back of your eyes.  Your optometrist can show you the digital image of your retina, and store the image on your records for future reference and comparison.

The digital image of your retina helps us closely monitor your eye health and look for any subtle changes at the back of your eyes.  This means we can detect common eye conditions sooner.

Digital retinal photography has two main benefits.  It helps your optometrist detect eye conditions earlier, and it can also highlight any signs of general health conditions including diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and possible risk of strokes.  In some cases, changes to the optic nerve, located at the back of your eyes, can even indicate signs of a possible brain tumour.
