About retinal imaging
The eye has long been recognized as the window to pathological processes occurring in the brain and other organs. By imaging the vasculature of the retina, the scientific understanding and clinical best practice for a diverse range of conditions, ranging from diabetes, to stroke, to dementia has been improved (Bedggood & Metha, 2020).

With the help of retinal imaging, retinal diseases such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, retinal tear, retinal detachment, macular hole, macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa can be detected and treated and provides the means to efficient therapy follow-up. Other common diseases where retinal imaging may play an important role is Diabetes, Alzheimer, Stroke, Dementia and Multiple Sclerosis.
