Fluorescein angiography is an eye test that uses a special dye and camera to look at blood flow in the retina and choroid. These are the two layers in the back of the eye.

Indications :

  • Blood flow (circulatory) problems, such as blockage of the arteries or veins
  • Cancer
  • Diabetic or other retinopathy
  • High blood pressure
  • Inflammation or edema
  • Macular degeneration
  • Microaneurysms — enlargement of capillaries in the retina
  • Tumors
  • Swelling of the optic disc
