Optical Coherence Tomography Services — In April, 2014, we added the Optovue iVue SD-OCT (Spectral Domain – Optical Coherence Tomography). The OCT is like an MRI of the eye, but painless and quick. (Read More About OCT Here)
Our office also offers High Resolution Retinal Photography, which uses a computer-integrated digital imaging system to record a detailed view of the retina and the major internal structures of your eyes.
Retinal photos can assist in early detection and management of retinal problems, optic nerve disease, pre-cancerous lesions, macular degeneration, hypertensive retinopathy, glaucoma changes and other diseases that may cause vision loss. (the picture to the left is an example of a picture taken of the back of an eye) Photos are especially important for patients over 35 years of age and those with a personal or family history of high blood pressure, diabetes, retinal problems, headaches, strong eyeglass prescription, borderline or high eye pressure or glaucoma. Call today to schedule your yearly health eye examination and have retinal photography to screen for any diseases that may result in vision loss.
