DIGITAL RETINOGRAPHY SYSTEM

The eye is like a biological camera .It has lens to focus the light on to the Retina on which the image is formed
Examination of the retina can give us a wealth of information regarding the health of the patient
Like Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension, and other general health problems.
Retinal examination is the most important examination.
At PRADNYA NETHRALAYA we have acquired new equipment called DIGITAL RETINOGRAPHY SYSTEM (DRS) from ITALY.
The advantage of DRS is that
1. One need not dilate the pupil and the complete retinal examination can be performed.
2. It is fully automatic.
3. Compact.
4. High definition images are obtained which can be viewed and at the same time prints can also be given.
5. Stereo photos (3D) can be taken and viewed using special glass.
6. Very useful in follow-up of patients especially in glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy
7. Cloud storage is available & the image can be accessed from any computer.
