In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, our office is proud to announce the inclusion of the Digital Retinal Imaging as an integral part of your eye exam.
The retina is the part of your eye that catches the image of what you are looking at, similar to the film in a camera.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on you might not notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina.
During your eye exam our doctors will evaluate the retina and structures at the back of the eye. However, digital imaging has several added benefits to further ensure retinal health both today and in the future:
- A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your optometrist to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the images of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
