What Conditions Can Retinal Photography Help To Detect?
Digital retinal photography can help identify a range of eye diseases in their early stages, including:
- Diabetic changes or retinopathy
- Age-related macular degeneration
- Retinal vascular changes
- Retinal detachment
When Should I Have Retinal Photography?
Retinal photography is usually performed as part of your comprehensive eye exam. However, if you notice any changes to your vision, or vision loss, your optometrist may use it to help identify any eye conditions that may be damaging your retina, and begin appropriate treatment and prevention strategies as soon as possible. We recommend that all of our patients have this test done as part of their annual or two-yearly eye exam, especially those with a personal history of diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol.
