Ophthalmic Photography

Ophthalmic Photography Treatments

Ophthalmic photography is a highly specialized form of medical imaging dedicated to the study and treatment of disorders of the eye. The cutting-edge technology aids in the diagnoses and proper courses of treatment of various eye disorders. Ophthalmic photography includes:

  • Fundus Imaging examines the retina and other interior parts of the eye.
  • Fluorescein Angiography allows the blood vessels at the back of the eye to be photographed as a fluorescent dye is injected into the bloodstream via the hand or arm.
  • External Photography documents the external structures of the eye and surrounding anatomy without a microscope.
  • Slit Lamp Imaging documents the structures of the eye — cornea, eyelids, and lens — with a specially designed horizontally mounted microscope.
  • Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is non-invasive and very accurately documents structural abnormalities within the retina.
