Diagnostic Testing

Additional Diagnostic Testing which may be included at your visit:

Fundus Photography

Fundus Photography a non-invasive imaging test, used to take images of the retina, using our specialized camera system. Test only takes a few minutes.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT): a non-invasive imaging test used to take cross section images of your retina. This test takes minutes and we will be able to provide the image to Dr. Met immediately.

Fluorescein angiography

Fluorescein angiography a test done by starting an IV typically done in the hand or arm and injecting a vegetable dye, known as fluorescein, into your vein. This dye travels through the blood stream to the blood vessels inside the eye. With the help of our camera system, we are able to take images which highlights the dye in the back of each eye.
Dr. Met will review these images for blood vessel abnormalities and will then be able to determine a diagnosis and possible treatment options for you. You do not have any restrictions prior to or after your fluorescein angiography.

Some common side effects of the fluorescein angiography are:

  • Possible yellowing of skin at the site of injection
  • Possible yellowing along the whites of your eyes for up to 12-24 hours
  • Excretion of dye through your urine up to 36 hours after injection
  • Possible allergic reactions (very infrequently occur) may include itching and/or hives

Ocular ultrasound (B-scan)

Ocular ultrasound (B-scan) A test used if the view inside the eye is significantly decreased for various reasons. A probe is placed on the closed eyelid and Dr. Met is able to take an image to see the retina or a specific mass.
