Ophthalmic Digital Imaging
Our computer assisted digital imaging system enables us to provide a more thorough record of the health of your eyes.
Digital imaging can assist us in early detection of deteriorating ocular conditions including central retinal diseases, central detachments, holes, thinning, optic nerve disease, precancerous lesions, macular degeneration, hypertensive retinopathy and diabetic retinopathy.
The Nidek ultra-high resolution retinal camera allows for an advanced diagnostic analysis of your ocular health. This noninvasive imaging device provides detailed and comprehensive documentation and allows us to store these images to compare with the results of future tests, so that a complete ocular health history can be generated. Minute changes become apparent that we may not been able to identify without these tests.
We strongly recommend ALL of our patients receive this test. It is especially important for those patients who have, or have a relative with high blood pressure, diabetes, retinal problems, headaches, floaters, flashing streaks, a strong prescription for glasses, diminishing vision, macular degeneration, cataracts or taking medications.
