Digital Retinal Imaging facilitates the doctor in evaluating the health of the back of your eye (the retina). It is used to detect and monitor diseases including diabetes and macular degeneration. It is a critical tool for monitoring the progression of eye conditions.
Many eye diseases, if detected at an early stage, can be treated successfully without significant vision loss. Your Retinal Images will be stored electronically, which allows the doctor to detect and measure any changes to your eyes each time you are examined. Remember many eye conditions, including glaucoma, are diagnosed by detecting changes over time.
Digital Retinal Imaging is included in every Comprehensive Eye Exam at OPTOMEYES.
