Among the other tests that your ophthalmologist may conduct are:

  • Fluorescein angiography. This is a diagnostic procedure that uses a special camera to take a series of photographs of the retina after a small amount of yellow dye (fluorescein) is injected into a vein in your arm. The photographs of fluorescein dye traveling throughout the retinal vessels show how many blood vessels are closed;
  • Intraocular pressure (pressure inside the eye);
  • Reflexes of your pupil;
  • Photos of the retina;
  • Slit-lamp examination;
  • Testing of side vision (visual field examination); and
  • Visual acuity, to determine how well you can read an eye chart.
