Digital Retinal Photography

Digital Retinal Photography Enables Us to Detect the Early Onset of Degenerative Eye Conditions

What is Digital Retinal Photography?

A high-resolution imaging system takes digital photographs of the inside of your eye with the ability to magnify images more than 1000x.

What Are You Looking For?

Our Optometrists are specially trained to look for the earliest signs of any abnormal eye conditions or diseases. Some of the conditions retinal imaging can help our doctors find are:

    • Age-Related Macular Degeneration
    • Cancer
    • Diabetic Retinopathy
    • Glaucoma
    • Retinal detachment or tears
    • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
    • High Cholesterol
A Detailed Visual History of Your Eye Health

Retinal photography allows for a permanent and detailed record of your eye health. These images give our our eye doctors the ability to compare your images over time, increasing the chances of detecting subtle changes in your eye health.

Important Information About Digital Retinal Photography

What to Expect During the Procedure

Retinal imaging is a non-invasive procedure. Patients do not experience any pain or discomfort. We will ask you look into the lens of the camera and take a photo of each eye – that’s it!

Performed During Every Eye Exam

Our goal is to monitor your ocular health closely and in it’s entirety. Every adult patient age 19-64 will have this procedure performed for each eye exam. For our senior patients, unfortunately Alberta Health Care does not pay for this technology so our clinic charges a $20 cost recovery fee.

Did You Know?

15 years ago Lakeland Family Eyecare was one of the first clinics to use a digital retinal camera to take pictures of the back of the eye. We continually invest in new advanced technologies that better enable us to detect and treat developing eye diseases.

Digital Retinal Photography is Integral to Early Detection and Prevention

You have likely heard the phrase “early detection and prevention are key” when it comes to your health.   This phrase is even more important when it involves your eyes.

As most vision loss cannot be reversed, the earlier an eye condition is discovered and treated, the better your chances are for maintaining excellent ocular health and vision.
