Photographing the retina has become a standard procedure in identifying pathology and with a well dilated pupil and cooperative patient a clear view of the back of the eye can be achieved.
But what happens when the patient is unable to cooperate, in this case photographing the retina of a premature baby?
A new technique has been developed at Oxford Eye Hospital by Mr CK Patel (Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon) using the Optomap California. This procedure has created interest from around the world and we wanted a way to demonstrate the complexities of the technique that can be easily shared.
In conjunction with the Radcliffe Science Libraries we produced a short film using virtual reality to immerse the viewer into the clinical environment.
