Your eyes are AMAZING! Look after them.
Retinal Imaging allows your Optometrists to view the back of your eyes. It’s important because it means we can pick up signs of conditions including Glaucoma, Diabetes, Hypertension and Age related Macular Degeneration.
Undergoing this quick procedure can help save you a lot of problems and even loss of sight in later life. We include Retinal imaging complementary as part of your comprehensive eye examinations.
The Optometrist takes time to show and explain the images taken of the back of your eye. We feel this will give you a better understanding of the health of your eyes. The images taken are stored and can be recalled, therefore enabling the optometrist to compare these from one visit to the next. Allowing even the most subtle changes to be detected aiding in early diagnosis.
For a far more in-depth record of the health and condition of you eyes, we recommend OCT. Similar to an MRI, it scans, measures and provides a detailed 3D digital image of the underlying retina. This enables our Optometrists to detect evidence of sight threatening conditions in the deeper structure of the eye, including. • Macular Degeneration / Holes • Diabetic Retinopathy • Glaucoma, all of which could be detected and treated up to 5 Years earlier.
