Eye Photography: Examples of Eye Imaging

UW Health's eye care services (ophthalmology) uses ophthalmic photography to study the eye and diagnose potential problems with vision. Ophthalmic (or eye) photography is a specialized branch of medical photography that uses specific imaging equipment to photograph, scan or otherwise image the eye.

 

The images below are examples of eye imaging.
