Retinal Digital Photography

With the advent of high resolution digital photography retinal imaging has become the new gold standard of eyecare. A detailed image of your retina - the back of your eye - is taken allowing the optometrist to see and keep detailed records of your eye health and how it changes over time. The technology allows for earlier, more accurate detection of eye damage from smoking, glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, high blood pressure and cholesterol.

However, diabetes is the most common cause of preventable blindness in the developed world and in the photo pictured left there are two dark spots- micro aneurysms (blisters on a capillary) below and close to the fovea (the large dark area). The fovea is responsible for sharp central vision (also called foveal vision), which is necessary in humans for activities where visual detail is of primary importance, such as reading and driving. So using new advances in technology allows David to keep track of your eye health as it develops.
