Digital Retinal Imaging
Retinal images, which are stored digitally, allow our optometrists to keep a permanent record of your retina, which refers to the tissues at the back of your eye. This is helpful for picking up on any changes in your retina or optic nerve from one eye examination to the next. Many eye conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration, can be diagnosed early if changes are detected over time. Early treatment is thereby enabled, which promotes long-term maintenance of good vision and eye health.
Retinal digital imaging is safe, quick and painless, providing immediate, high-resolution pictures of your eye tissue for the doctor to assess.
Peripheral Vision Testing
We test the clarity of your “side-view” eyesight with the help of visual field testing that is done by a computerized machine. During this painless procedure, lights are flashed and you must respond by pressing a button when you see the light. The entire test spans anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes.
