As part of our commitment to provide you with the very highest standard of eye care we include retinal imaging as standard in our comprehensive eye examinations.
A state of the art digital retinal camera is used to capture photographic images of the back of your eyes. This technique is one of the most accurate and advanced ways of screening for many different eye diseases, as it allows us to inspect the retina in far more detail compared to conventional methods which were previously relied on.
The detection of certain conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, hypertension and age related macular degeneration, to name just a few, can be made easily and earlier limiting any unnecessary loss of vision.
Your optometrist will take the time to show and explain the images taken of the back of your eyes to you, as we feel this will give you a better understanding of the health of your eyes.
The images taken are stored and can be recalled at any time, therefore enabling your optometrist to compare these from one visit to the next. This ensures that even the most subtle changes are detected, aiding in early diagnosis.
