Brief Summary:
  1. To compare quality and usability of images taken by two different camera-systems without dilating the pupil.
  2. To compare the retinal vessel diameters based on the images of to different camera-systems.
  3. To detect changes in retinal vessel diameters while pregnancy and after delivery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Eye Diseases Retina; Lesion Optic Disc Structural Anomaly Other: Retinal imaging Other: Vessel measurements Other: Change in vessel diameters Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
  1. To compare quality and usability of images taken by two different camera-systems without dilating the pupil.

    Quality means in this content that images cover the planned region of interest and images should be sharp and good illuminated to see details for medical reading of retinal findings.

  2. To compare the retinal vessel diameters based on the images of to different camera-systems.

    The diameters of arteries and veins are planned to be measured with an automated software algorithm. Are there differences in the calculated results between the two used camera devices?

  3. To detect changes in retinal vessel diameters while pregnancy and after delivery.

Are there detectable changes of the retinal findings between the images taken before and after delivery (e.g. bleeding, edema, vessel tortuosity)
