Digital retinal photography is a sophisticated process that allows us to take a detailed picture of the back of your eye. It doesn’t just help us spot sight-related problems. It can also highlight a range of other conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, risk of a stroke and symptoms associated with brain tumours. One of the leading causes of blindness throughout the world is diabetic retinopathy. In order to provide the best level of care it is important to detect the disease as early as possible.
