What is the retina?
We perform the following retinal tests:
- Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT): Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging technique that produces high resolution cross-sectional tomographs (or pictures) of the retina.
- Fluorescein Angiogram: A fluorescein angiogram is a sophisticated test used to examine the retina. To begin the test, dye is injected into a vein.
- Indocyanine Green Angiography (ICG): Indocyanine green angiography (ICG) is a test similar to a fluorescein angiogram. This dye, after injected, circulates in the blood stream and makes its way to the blood vessels underneath the retina.
- Ultrasound: B-scan ultrasonography is a non-invasive diagnostic test we use to examine the eyeball when we cannot see into the back of the eye.
