Here at Eye Express, one of the many ways in which our Morrisania eye doctor provides our patients with the highest quality eye care services is with the use of fundus photography. Fundus photography is a mechanism used to document the retina. The retina is located at the back part of the eye, and is contains special neurosensory tissue that translates the images you see into impulses that your brain can understand and process.
In fundus photography, the pupil serves as both an entrance and exit for the camera’s specialized light rays. When our Morrisania eye doctor is using fundus photography during your appointment, you will sit at the fundus camera with your chin resting on a platform and your forehead set against a bar. Next, our Morrisania eye doctor will focus and and align the camera so that it is set up in the optimal position. As the photo is taken, a flash will go off, just like with your regular digital camera. The photograph that results will then be used in completing a thorough, in-depth analysis of your retina. Retinal examinations are an important part of comprehensive eye exams because the retina is often prone to serious eye conditions that can do significant damage to your vision. Therefore, fundus photography is highly beneficial to you because it allows our Morrisania eye doctor to give you a more accurate and helpful retinal examination during your visit. Retinal examinations also allow us to catch developing conditions early on, perhaps even before any symptoms noticeable to you have developed. In doing so, our Morrisania eye doctor can provide you with the treatment you need right away and provide more extensive complications from occurring in the future.
