Digital Retinal Photography is a quick and painless procedure that enhances the way eye health is checked. Some of the benefits are listed below:
An accurate permanent record can be saved – allowing even the smallest changes to noted and monitored at subsequent eye examinations
The Retina is the only place in the entire body, where the appearance of the blood vessels can be viewed directly. Unusual blood vessel size or appearance can indicate raised blood pressure, high cholesterol, or show signs of circulatory disorders.
More accurate information can be forwarded to an eye specialist if a referral is required
It allows you, the patient, a better understanding of what the optometrist does and sees when looking into your eye
It provides peace of mind that the eyes are healthy
Digital Retinal photography is included in our advanced private eye examination and available at a supplementary charge to and NHS patients.
