Fluorescein angiography

Fluorescein angiography is a procedure where dye is injected into a vein in your hand or arm and a series of photographs are taken of the back of the eye.  This gives important information about the blood vessels and is vital in the diagnosis and management of many eye conditions.

After the procedure you will notice a yellow discolouration of your skin and urine for 24 - 48 hours.  A few people may notice transient nausea or allergic reactions, but serious ill effects are very rare.
