Fluorescein and infracyanine green angiography

The fundus camera is used to take photographic images of the posterior segments of the eye (retina).

Fluorescence image taken with the Optos device.


The HRA Spectralis, Optos and Zeiss camera devices can be used to perform fluorescein and infracyanine green angiography. A contrast medium is injected intravenously. During the following 10 minutes, photographs of the retina are taken. This examination serves to precisely determine pathological changes in the retina, its vessels and neighboring structures. These findings are important in order to assess the treatment options and to be able to carry out a targeted therapy.
