In brief: IV protection
Fluorescein angiography involves the injection through an IV line of the dye and then a series of rapid photos are taken of the transit of the dye through the retina at the back of the eye.
The pupils are dilated, the patient is position in front of the camera, the skin is prepped, the needle inserted, dye injected and the camera is activated with a series of light flashes. Then you are done.
