Retinal images are available with our high resolution EIDON camera. The pictures obtained are examined by the optometrist and are an important tool in the management of your visual health. They can also enable early diagnosis of potential eye conditions. The College of Optometrists of Ontario recommends that patients opt for retinal images, however it is the patient’s choice as there is an extra charge.
Retina imaging provides a baseline for future eye care and allows your eye doctor to see more details of the back of your eye.
Taking the pictures doesn’t require dilation, but it is recommended to dilate the pupils to check the peripheral retina for diseases (the area of the eye the camera doesn't reach).
It takes less than a minute.
NO! Imaging can pick up subtle abnormalities the doctor can miss if the patient is unable to sit for a standard dilated exam.
NO! This exam is quick, relaxed, and designed for your comfort.
