Retinal imaging at Dolphins Optometrists is like nowhere else. We stand out from the crowd because we utilise cutting-edge technology to provide accurate retinal maps. Therefore this aids us in effectively assessing the health of our clients’ retinas.

Staying at the forefront of modern science is one of our distinguishing features

We pride ourselves on staying on the cutting-edge of technology. Therefore, we are able to guarantee a first class service in looking after the health of our patients eyes. Furthermore, we are experts in retinal imaging at Dolphins Optometrists. We are proud to have an ultra-wide-field retinal imaging machine, Optos, and a structural layer analyser, Zeiss OCT. Therefore, we can effectively map clients’ retinas.



Traditional retinal photographs capture an area approximately 45 degrees wide, however the Optos machine produces very wide angle retinal images that are 200 degrees wide! The images truly speak for themselves.

More visibility of the retina therefore helps to identify signs of retinal complications that can then be addressed accordingly. Hence, Optos supports us in identifying early changes in the eye related to diabetes, blood pressure and retinal tears/detachments. Whilst we would always hope that there are no complications, early detection often means more successful resolution.

Utilising this technology allows us to spot issues early, therefore giving us as much time as possible to provide a solution and avoid permanent damage.



Zeiss OCT

OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) is a technology used to measure the layers of the retina of the eye. This is a simple, non-contact test which takes just a few seconds, consequently allowing us to identify any potential problems with the retina at an early stage. Therefore, we can detect early symtpoms and manage common diseases such as Glaucoma, Diabetes and Age Related Macula Degeneration.

OCT analysis is frequently used in glaucoma monitoring and other diseases, for example, macular degeneration. Therefore, having these scans as part of a routine examination establishes a base line upon which comparisons can be made at successive eye tests. Hence, any changes found can then be managed earlier rather than later.
