Fundus Camera

A fundus camera is a specialized low power microscope with an attached camera designed for fundus photography. The machine creates a photograph of the interior surface of the eye, including the retina, optic disc, macula, and posterior pole. These photos are used by our optometrists for monitoring progression of diseases, diagnosis of a diseases (combined with other scans and testing) where the photos can be analyzed later. Since fundus photos are a permanent image, our doctors are able to detect small changes in the retina and optic nerve much sooner than without these photos.
