Fundus Photography

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. A digital fundus camera normally consists of a camera with a specialized microscope attached. Either a lamp or flash provides the light necessary for photo taking, and depending on the camera photos at different angles of view — from narrow to wide — can be taken. The resulting image can then be used by an ophthalmologist for diagnosis and treatment.
