Flourescein Angiogram

Flourescein dye is injected into a vein which circulates to the blood vessels in the eye.  A special camera is used to photograph the retina in the back of the eye.  The dye causes the retinal blood vessels to light up on the photograph and shows areas of abnormal vessel growth, swelling, bleeding, or retinal atrophy.  It is most commonly used to detect diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and other retinal disorders.
