Fundus Cameras

Fundus photography, which is performed using a fundus camera, is the process of capturing a photograph of the back of the eye. These specialist fundus cameras consist of an intricate microscope which is invariably attached to a flash enabed camera.

The areas that are photographed with the fundus camera are the central and peripheral retina, the optic disc and the macula. Fundus photography can be performed with coloured filters but specialized dyes including fluorescein and indocyanine green can also be used.
