DIGITAL RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY

This is an advanced new method of checking the health of your eyes. 


 

We are committed to providing our patients with the highest standard of eye care available, so we have recently installed a state-of-the-art Topcon Digital Retinal Camera in our testing room.

This equipment allows us to take photographs of the back of your eyes (the retina) and enable us to carry out far more detailed examination than previously possible. 

The retinal examination is comfortable and the image is captured in just seconds using flash photography - nothing touches your eyes. 

We will then have a permanent and accurate record of the condition of your eyes stored on our computer, allowing us to compare images and look for any changes,  year on year - which could prove to be invaluable in monitoring your eye health.

We are sure that you can see the benefits of this important new service - a service that is available to everyone.  We make a small additional charge for this worthwhile examination which is not normally available under the NHS funded standard eye examination.

Here are some examples of some images we have captured from patients during the first few months of the cameras use.
