Photographing the retina using our extremely advanced digital system allows a very high-resolution detailed picture of your child’s optic nerve head and retina. This ensures even the smallest of problems to be spotted allowing for earlier detection of congenital, inherited and acquired eye disease such as papilloedema (raised intra cranial pressure behind the eye).
