what is rtinal imaging

What is retinal screening?

Our digital retinal camera allows us to see a much wider section of the back of your eye, which consequently enables a thorough check of your eye health. 


Retinal imaging can be used as an early detection tool by optometrists, helping us to identify any signs of potential eye diseases, including:


  • Glaucoma

  • Diabetic retinopathy

  • Age-related macular degeneration

  • Diabetes

  • High blood pressure

  • High cholesterol.


Proactively monitoring the health of your eyes means that we can detect serious eye conditions at the very early stages. This in turn allows faster and more effective treatment for you.

Optos Optomap 

We have always ensured we invest in the latest optical technology and we were one of the original practices in the Leicester area to offer Optomap retinal screening. 


Our Optomap machine takes a high-resolution image of more than 200 degrees of the retina. This means we can view 80% of your eye in a single, ultra-wide capture.  


Retinal photography is offered as an enhanced eye examination. If you have any questions about this or would like to book an appointment, our team is happy to hear from you.
