Digital Retinal Photography

Have you ever seen the inside of your eye? See what the doctor sees when he looks into your eyes! We feel that it is important that our patients understand what we are looking for, and what we see when the doctor looks inside your eyes.

Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on, you might not notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, central retinal vein or artery occlusion, optic strokes, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be detected with a through retinal examination utilizing a digital retinal camera.

Digital retinal photography consists of a digital camera system that takes a photograph of your retina. Here is a summary of the benefits of Digital Retinal Photography:

  • A scan to confirm a healthy eye or detect the presence of disease.
  • An overview or map of the retina, giving your eye doctor a more detailed view than he can achieve by other means.
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss the images of your eye with your doctor at the time of your examination.

There is no need to wait for results, our digital camera gives us the images within seconds for review. By looking at digital photos from previous years, your doctor can look for changes over time and determine if more aggressive treatments are necessary.

We recommend that all our patients receive this test. It is especially important for patients with a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, retinal diseases, flashes of light, floaters, headaches and those with a strong glass prescription.
