Digital Non Mydriatic Retinal Photography

We use the Topcon TRC-NW100 Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera

Topcon has years of experience in retinal imaging with the latest in digital technology. This new instrument features a crisp 2.3 million pixel image, which provides excellent details of the retinal surface for all types of diagnostic requirements, from disc evaluation for glaucoma to diabetic retinopathy evaluation.

This technology allows us to have instant review of your retina without needing to dilate your pupils (Mydriasis). It can get good photos even when the pupil is as small as 4mm, but we sometimes re-take the photos after dilation to get the best crispness if there is cataract prescent. We then digitally file your photos, integrated into our practice software. the photos can be digitally manipulated, measured and scored as well.
