Fundus Photography also known as fundography, is the creation of a photograph of the interior surface of the eye, including the retina, optic disc, macula and posterior pole. Fundus photography is used primarily to detect eye diseases such as glaucoma. Glaucoma has been called the “silent thief of sight” because the loss of vision often occurs gradually over a long period of time, and symptoms only appear when the disease is quite advanced. Once lost, vision cannot normally be recovered, so treatment is aimed at preventing further loss. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world, after cataracts.
