Retinal imaging

The retina, fundus, is not only the most important interface with the external world for people, but also shows clear indications of what is happening in the body. Retinal imaging has started as a diagnostic tool for eye diseases but is evolving into a guide for health and wellness information. One of the most important current function is the screening of diabetes patients for Diabetic Retinopathy. More generalized screening programs can also screen for Age-related Macula Degeneration (AMD) and Glaucoma.
