Digital retinal photography can help doctors see directly into the eyes of patients and detect retinal problems before they result in serious vision disturbances.
The retina is a very sensitive part of the eye that is easily susceptible to damage from a variety of internal and external factors. Retinal damage can cause partial vision loss or total blindness if it remains untreated. Many retinal problems show no symptoms until it is too late.
With retinal imaging, specialists can detect these issues in time and take direct action to cure them.
Retinal imaging can show eye doctors a wide range of issues. With the aid of this technology, they are able to view high-resolution images of the back of the eye. These images can help with diagnosis of the following problems:
Digital photography is often the first line of defense against common eye problems. These issues can remain “silent” and cause serious damage if they are not spotted early by imaging technology.
Taking ultra-high resolution images of your eye and retina enables the Optometrist to get a crystal-clear picture of your eye. As you can imagine, this aids us tremendously in diagnosing diseases or conditions that may be beginning to form.
A complete eye exam can help you preserve your eye health for many more years.
