Fundus Photo

Fundus Photo

A digital fundus camera is used to take an image of the fundus — the back portion of the eye that includes the retina, macula, fovea, optic disc and posterior pole. The resulting image can then be used by an ophthalmologist for diagnosis and treatment.

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE?

  • Your ophthalmologist will put drops in your eyes to dilate (widen) your pupil.
  • You have to sit in front of the fundus camera with your chin on a chin rest (an attachment) and your forehead against the bar.
  • Your doctor will focus and align the fundus camera on you eye.
  • As soon as the doctor presses the shutter release, flash fires that create a photograph of the interior surface of your eye.
