Indocyanine green angiography

Indocyanine green angiography is a supplementary examination for fluorescein angiography, mostly used in cases of retinal degeneration which are difficult to diagnose. Before the examination, the patient receives an intravenous contrast medium (indocyanine green); then, a series of black and white photographs of the eye fundus are taken. The examination should not be performed in pregnant women, or subjects with hypersensitivity to iodides or hepatic impairment. The examination lasts about 1.5 hours (together with the administration of a contrast agent and pupildilating drops) .


In most cases, yes. If the doctor decides that some additional examinations are necessary, they may be performed during the visit, or if the doctor does not perform that kind of examinations, the patient is referred to another specialist.

Yes, it is recommended that contact lenses be removed before the visit. The patient should bring the lenses to the visit, since the doctor may ask the patient to insert them.

The waiting time for a private visit is up to a week. This time may be longer if the patient wants to see a particular specialist. The waiting time for a National Health Fund visit is according to the waiting list. Please call or e-mail us to appoint a specific date.

An ophthalmological visit does not require special preparation. If this is your first visit at the centre, you should have the identity card, which is necessary to create a patient record. Also remember that in most cases it is not allowed to drive a car after an ophthalmological visit.

During the first visit, the doctor takes the patient’s ophthalmological history. If the patient has any ophthalmological documentation from other institutions, it is worth taking it to the visit.

You can return to work/school after the ophthalmological visit, but please remember that if you received eye drops at the visit, your vision may be disturbed and blurred for about 2-3 hours.

If you received pupil-dilating drops at the visit, you must NOT drive a car directly after the visit. You should wait for about 2-3 hours.
