The retina is a delicate lining at the back of the eye which is connected to the brain. An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals to your brain, which can result in impaired vision or blindness.
Many retinal conditions and other diseases can be treated successfully with early detection. Hence, regular comprehensive eye examinations are very important to ensure our eyes are healthy.
Our practice is equipped with state of the art technology to provide our patients with the best eye care possible.
Optomap wide field digital scan
The Optomap ultra- wide digital retinal imaging system captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image.
Traditional methods typically only reveal 10 - 15% of your retina at one time. An optomap takes only seconds to perform and is not painful.
Seeing most of the retina at once allows the optometrist to review your images and educate you about your eye health.
The optomap scan is not covered under medicare with an additional fee of $40.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
The OCT is a diagnostic machine that helps the optometrist see the internal structures of your eyes, so problems can be treated before they progress.
This scan allows the optometrist to examine the individual layers of the retina and optic nerve and collect baseline data and compare all the scans to detect minute changes that the naked eye may miss.
The OCT is safe and only takes 10 minutes. It is the only technology that provides the cross sectional images of the eye for precise diagnosis and treatment.
The OCT scan is not covered under medicare with an additional fee of $50.
