To assess the health of your retina
We will start with dilating your pupils to make the retina more visible. Once the pupils are dilated the patient will place their chin on a special apparatus in front of a camera. Every picture taken will be visible as a bright flash. . Multiple pictures may be necessary for accuracy.
The duration is dependent on how long it take for the pupils to fully dilate. Photos usually only take a couple of minutes, however the whole process may take up to 40 minutes.
Due to the necessity of pupil dilation your vision will be disturbed for 1-3 hours after the procedure. Before your vision has fully restored you should not drive.
