A fluorescein angiogram is a sophisticated test used to examine the retina. To begin the test, dye is injected into a vein. This dye circulates in the blood stream and makes its way to the blood vessels in the retina. We use a special camera to take pictures of the dye as it flows through the blood vessels of the retina. As this camera is hooked-up to a digital system, we can give you instant results of the test. We can even print you a copy of the test immeadiatley after its completion. Diabetic Retinopathy and Macular Degeneration are the two most common diseases requiring the use of this special test. After the test, your urine may turn orange for up to 24 hours. Some patients experience nausea and vomiting during the test. Allergic reactions are rare. Severe anaphalactic reactions have been reported, but are very rare.
