How is eye angioma made?

Eye angiography is used to stain the veins on the back of the eye with special paint, to see the unseen problems, to make a diagnosis, to decide the treatment and to monitor the effects of the treatment. At the beginning of the procedure, pupils are dilated with drops and a special drug is given to the veins from the arm. After the drug reaches the eye in the circulation, the veins in the eye are seen more clearly. In the meantime, intraocular photographs are taken with a special microscope and light. With these photos, the patient is diagnosed. Lasting approximately half an hour, the application does not harm the eyes.
