Ocular Toxoplasmosis - Eye Infection
Diagnostic tests may include slit lamp evaluation, fluorescein angiography (FA), and Indocyanine green (ICG) angiography. A slit lamp evaluation uses a microscope and beam of light that allows your doctor to see the structures inside of your eye. Fluorescein angiography is used to show the retinal blood supply. Photos of your retina are taken after a dye is injected into your bloodstream. Indocyanine green angiography also uses injected dye and a camera system. It can produce pictures of the blood vessels beneath the retina. ICG can detect subtle changes in the blood vessels.
