Aim

To discover possible haemorrhage or blockage sites of blood vessels in the eye.

Procedure

Your pupils will be dilated and prior to having the angiography normal photographs will be taken of the back of the eye. Dye will be injected into your bloodstream through either your forearm or the back of your hand. Approximately 15 seconds after the injection the dye will reach the blood vessels in the back of your eye. With a special camera the journey of the dye will be recorded and monitored.

Duration

This procedure will take approximately 1 hour.
