Digital imaging: a
major advance in
eye examination

We have recently invested in a non-mydriatic retinal camera. This instrument enables us to examine and record your eye health in greater detail than before.

Digital imaging is very simple and only involves a camera flash. Some patients with very small pupils may require a mild eye-drop to enlarge the pupil sufficiently for imaging.

Who benefits
from digital
retinal imaging?

Patients with a family history of glaucoma, diabetes or macular degeneration will benefit from our ability to record and compare the condition of their eyes over several years.

We can also use the camera to document other eye conditions such as pterygia and cataracts.
