Camera Operators are essential element of the EyePACS telemedicine program. At each EyePACS screening, each diabetic patient will have a total of eight pictures taken of the retina – three internal and one external for each eye. In order to ensure the most complete view possible of the retina and achieve the best readable images in a timely manner to best serve patients, photographers are trained with emphasis on focus, position and illumination of each picture and are well equipped to operate various retinal cameras.

For the success of diabetic retinopathy screening, a camera operator must be familiar and comfortable with technological devices, interact and communicate well with patients, and demonstrate attention to detail to capture consistently high quality images.
