Cameras, Photographic, Ophthalmic, Fundus
Definition : Ophthalmic photographic cameras designed to take still images of the ocular fundus and associated blood vessels (i.e., fundus oculi) of the eye. These devices typically consist of dedicated high-resolution photographic (either film or digital) cameras that may include specific controls to facilitate the operation and image devices for observation; they are usually attached to a low-power microscope. Fundus cameras are frequently intended for observation of the ocular fundus after local administration of pupil dilatation drugs (known as mydriatic cameras); cameras that provide images without pupil dilatation (i.e., nonmydiatric cameras), or for both conditions are also available. The cameras are used for screening, diagnosis, and checking treatment progress in patients suffering or at risk of retinopathy (e.g., macular degeneration).
