Retinal imaging is a non-invasive procedure that can be performed in addition to your suggested annual eye examination. It allows your doctor to take detailed digital photos of the back of your eye and store them digitally in order to track changes in the health of your eye over time. Regular retinal imaging can alert your doctor to potential general and ocular health risks including diabetic retinopathy, hypertension, macular degeneration, glaucoma and retinal detachments or tears.
