Retina Photography is of course taking photos of the retina. There are different types of retina photos to capture specific pathology. Most of the time I use Fluorescein Angiography to capture many of the retinal diseases. If it does not have to do with the vascular system of the retina then I will usually just take a photograph of the pathology.

Fluorescein Angiography is done by injecting a fluorescent dye called Sodium Fluorescein intravenously. Once the dye starts to be injected we can see it go through the vessels in the retina after about 12-15sec. Depending on the patient it might take longer to reach the retina. Once we start to see it we photograph the flow of the circulation in your retina. With a certain filter on the Fundus camera you can only see the vessels with the dye in them. It will be in black and white. Now the reason we do the Fluorescein Angiogram is so that if there are vessels in your eye that is leaking, it will leak out that Fluorescein and it will show a brighter area that indicates the leaking. That will tell the Ophthalmologist a lot of information about where it's leaking, how much it is and what type of procedure to help cure it or at least slow down the progression.
