Eye Photo is a photography service that is operated by non-medical staff. We take high-resolution retinal photographs for patients that primary physicians may use to look for signs of sight-threatening diabetic retinopathy.
We do not give reports, provide medical advice, comment on patient care, endorse or sell any products, give recommendations for eye specialist referrals or retain patient data/records.
Our target population is the diabetic community that is currently under-screened owing to lack of awareness, lack of access to other means of screening, or both. It is not our aim to replace any existing medical eye care that patients may already be receiving.
Retinal photography for diabetic retinopathy screening is purpose-specific, and cannot be relied on to exclude the presence of coexisting eye conditions, such as glaucoma or macular disorders. Hence, patients who desire a comprehensive eye evaluation should be advised to see an ophthalmologist, instead of undergoing retinal photography alone.
Please note also that some patients may not be suitable for retinal photography if they have small pupils or significant opacities in their ocular media. See Before Sending a Patient.
