A fundus picture is a photograph of the inside of the eye. We take these pictures when we are interested in looking at certain structures like the retina, optic disc, or blood vessels which are located at the back of the eye. We capture what your eye looks like at a particular moment in time to help diagnose disease, and can compare future photos for monitoring conditions like diabetes, glaucoma, or hypertension.
You’ll be seated in front of a microscope which has a camera attached to it. The technician will ask you to look in different directions to get multiple pictures.
