Digital Retinal Photography

There are loads of gadgets and gizmos available for opticians to produce pretty pictures, but at Jones & Murphy we only invest in equipment if it is going to provide clinically useful information.

Back in the early 90’s we were one of the very first practices to purchase a camera for taking photographs the retina.  We have finally retired our faithful 35mm Kowa camera and invested in a the latest digital retinal camera from Topcon.  This is capable of producing high resolution images instantly and, in most cases, without the use of drops.

Digital retinal photography allows documentation of the health of your eyes in greater detail, this allows us to pick up disease far earlier than if we were relying solely on written notes and diagrams.

Next time you’re here for your sight test ask about getting your eyes photographed.
