Digital Retinal Imaging allows your eye doctor to evaluate the health of the back of your eye, the retina. It is used to detect diseases, such as, diabetes and macular degeneration. It is critical to confirm the health of the retina, optic nerve and other retinal structures.
Many eye diseases, if detected at an early stage, can be treated successfully without total loss of vision. Your retinal images will be stored electronically. This gives the doctor a permanent record of the condition and state of your retina. This is very important in assisting the doctor to detect and measure any changes to your retina each time you get your eyes examined, as many eye conditions, such as glaucoma are diagnosed by detecting changes over time.
Adlington Eye Center is now utilizing state of the art digital imaging technoloty to check the health of the eyes. This technology enables our doctors to view the inside of the eye in incredible detail, and to compare captured images over time with unparallel accuracy, in detecting changes.
This results in the best eye health examination technology available today and can be performed on all patients. In many cases, your eyes do not even need to be dilated to perform this very advanced testing.
