We can identify changes at an earlier stage and monitor them more accurately.

Testimonial Reference Retinal Photography
“It is one thing your GP telling you that you have high blood pressure, but another entirely seeing the result of that high blood pressure in the vessels of your eye. It certainly makes you follow your Doctors advice in the hope that it is not too late. I wish I had the photograph taken years ago, I will definitely have a new photograph each visit in the future.” PC
