Fundus Phototography

ophthalmic photography normal retina

Fundus photography is very useful to document the natural state of the back of the eye. The optic nerve, macula and main retinal blood vessels are common structures seen in a typical fundus photo. We take fundus photos of all of our patients at their annual compressive exams.

Fundus photography is used to document and sometimes diagnose certain eye conditions. This gives us a way to reference and compare during follow-up visits. It is important to document the findings of retinal diseases and conditions, especially diabetic eye disease findings, macular degeneration, macular holes and retinal tears and detachments.
