Digital Retinal Imaging
In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, our office is proud to offer this computer-integrated digital imaging system as an integral part of your eye exam today.
It allows the doctor to have a comprehensive and detailed view of the retina (the back of the eye) and allows for early detection of certain eye diseases such as:
- Macular degeneration
- Retinal detachments
- Retinal holes, tears, or thinning
- Certain eye cancers
As well as other non-eye diseases such as:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Stroke risks
DIGITAL RETINAL IMAGING takes minutes to perform; it is fast, painless and comfortable for patients. In the exam room the doctor will review your digital images, in order to help guide your eye health examination and to educate you on any eye health issues that may have been discovered.
DIGITAL RETINAL IMAGING is also a permanent record of your internal eye health so the doctor can compare even small changes to eye health from year to year. We have performed the procedure on patients of all ages and it is recommended with each eye examination.
