Retinal imagery instruments, also known as fundus cameras, offer a high definition solution for providing you with images of the retina. Often used in eye examinations, they can be instrumental in detecting health problems such as cataracts, glaucoma or high blood pressure.
Investing in advanced fundus cameras not only improve your eye care service, but will enable you to inspect any potential abnormalities in your patients’ vision, which could be life-changing.
The eye examination process is different for every patient, but expectations are continuing to rise as patients expect to gain more knowledge and insight from their appointments. In particular, the use of technology is becoming more and more favoured.
With that in mind, we take a look at 3 of the reasons to invest in retina imagery instruments, and the impact it can have on your practice.
Reason 1: Accurate screening
Accuracy is one of the most important aspects of eye examinations, as it can make all the difference to the detail of results you can give to the patient. Fundus cameras from Essilor
have been designed with accuracy in mind, offering rapid and accurate screening capabilities. You are able to detect problems with patients’ vision and eye health with complete confidence.
This high level of accuracy can mean better care and advice on treatment for patients, while also providing patients with a comprehensive understanding of their visual capacities.
Reason 2: Automated operation
Many different modern optical instruments are now available with automated operations, which leaves little room for error. This ease of use means that you’re able to use the equipment with the touch of a button.
Fundus cameras like the Retina 800 are able to carry out automatic image capture, which creates an easy process to detect any problems. The DRS (Digital Retinography System) has features including patient auto-sensing, auto-alignment and auto-focus to ensure high quality, clear images.
Reason 3: Compatible with technology
In a digitally-driven world, optical practices are under pressure to deliver technologically advanced services. It is a huge benefit if your optical instruments, including fundus cameras, are able to connect to other technology within your practice.
AnaEyes is an example of intuitive, digital software that helps you get more out of your instruments. The Retina 550 can utilise AnaEyes software to include a more efficient process.
What’s more, fundus cameras from Essilor offer independent screen features, in order to facilitate the sharing of results. This compatibility with technology can make it easy to store and share patient information securely for better continuity of care.
