The tissues in the retina are highly sensitive and susceptible to a variety of disease that can ultimately lead to partial loss of vision or even complete blindness. As most eye disease and systemic diseases are silent (without obvious symptoms), early detection is crucial.
Many patients are unaware of what the eye doctor can see on the back of the eye. Not only can they view the tissues, they can also see retinal problems and concerns such as macular degeneration, retinal detachments and retinal holes but they can see other system issues that surface in the retina such as diabetes, arteriosclerosis, and hypertension.
Important Information to Know:
Digital Retinal imaging is a high resolution image of the retina (back of the eye). This amazing technology is used by our optometrists to get an enhanced view of the tissues in the retina. This can be used to establish a wellness baseline and to follow critical retinal developments throughout your life and year over year observations.
Call and schedule your complete eye health exam today including your digital retinal imaging. We’re excited to show you real time examples of what this new technology means for transparency with our patients. We can immediately display images to review with our patients, illustrating their ocular health and leading to better informed discussions about eye care.
Your eye health is our biggest focus.
