Retinal Imaging

Digital widefield retinal imaging is an advanced digital retinal photograph. Taking a digital image of the posterior portion of the eye (the retina) will allow our doctors to detect ocular disease and monitor ocular health. The image that is produced captures a clear view of 200 degrees of the retina including the optic nerve, blood vessels, macula, and fovea.

Some of the most harmful eye diseases, such as retinal tears, ocular tumors, and diabetic retinopathy occur in the far periphery of the eye making them difficult to detect. Symptoms often do not manifest in the early stages and vision may not be affected until there is significant and unrecoverable damage.

Using ultra-widefield fundus imaging technology, our doctors can capture a wide, high-resolution image of your retina, facilitating a comprehensive assessment of your eye health and aiding in the early detection and management of eye diseases.

A look at the internal view of the eye can be key in detecting Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Retinal Detachment, and many other eye conditions in the early stages.

This image documents a baseline to track any future changes in your eyes in the health of your eyes.

  • Normal fundus/retina

  • Diabetic retinopathy: it is estimated that 1/3 of adults with diabetes are affected by diabetic retinopathy, which may cause blind spots and/or floaters. In severe cases, it may lead to blindness.

  • Macular degeneration (AMD): A progressing eye disease that often goes undetected, AMD is the leading cause of central vision loss in people over 60.

A tearing or separation of the retina (the light-sensitive lining at the back of the eye) from the underlying tissue.
