Digital Retinal Photography

John Baston - Explaining Fundus Photography
What Is Fundus Photography?


Fundus Photography is a sophisticated process that uses a digital camera that takes detailed pictures of the back of your eye - allowing you to see what we see.


It is used to document the health of the optic nerve, posterior pole, macula, retina and it's blood vessels; as well as keeping a permanent photographic reference of your eye health so we can review it again when you come back to see us next time.

Why have it done?

Fundus cameras are used by Optometrists, Ophthalmologists and trained medical personnel for monitoring the progression of a disease, diagnosis of a disease, or in screening programmes.

How do I get my picture taken?

As part of our continual commitment to offer you the best in eye care CU Optometrists offers fundus photography as part of your routine eye examination.*
