The Ophthalmic Photography Service helps with the diagnosis and treatment of various eye conditions.
The Ophthalmic Photography Service within the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust is used to confirm diagnosis and treatment of eye conditions. There are currently three full time ophthalmic photographers who work alongside nine ophthalmic consultants and their team of doctors.
Various photographic techniques are used within the department, which include:
- Stereo Disc Photography to monitor Glaucoma.
- Anterior Segment Imaging for photographing the lens and the front of the eye.
- Fundus Photography documenting changes to the retina at the back of the eye.
- Fundus Fluorescein Angiography demonstrating the circulation of blood at the back of the eye.
- Optical Coherence Tomography recording cross-sectional layers at the back of the eye
Most of these tests will require the use of eye-drops to enalrge the pupils. These drops may blur the vision for a few hours, so you should not plan to drive yourself home afterwards.
This service is part of the Medical Illustration department.
