Laser eye imaging is a technique used to diagnose eye conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, and glaucoma, with extreme accuracy. We use two instruments to take different kinds of pictures to help determine your eye health.
One is our Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scan.
The other is our Optos Retinal scan. The doctor recommends an optomap as an integral part of your vision exam. An optomap provides a view of approximately 82% of your retina in a single capture and is an important tool in evaluating your visual health. The retinal photograph provides a much more detailed view than can be achieved with dilation.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. You may not notice any change in your vision early on; however, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected with a thorough examination of the retina.
We can compare your eye photos from visit to visit; forward the photos to other doctors if you move; we can even email them to you if you want a copy!
