Digital Retinal Imaging
Advanced technology used with skill. Our digital retinal imaging allows us to take a real time scan of the back of your eye. This photograph then helps your optometrist to see in detail many health and vision issues including for instance:
- Macular Degeneration
- Other Retinal diseases
Believe it or not, it only takes a minute to capture an image of the back of your eye. And after taking a real-time scan, our optometrist will review the retinal photo with you – letting you see in detail the exact state of health of the tissues of your eye.
The image is then stored in our records to allow your optometrist to track your eye health over time and to ensure that you receive the most effective treatment. This will also make it more convenient for us to answer any questions you might have – for example, if you want to know if you have any signs of diabetic damage or if you’re developing macular degeneration we can pull your latest digital retinal image and refer to it with ease.
We recommend all of our patients utilize this service in order to help provide the absolute best diagnosis. As part of our approach to providing the most accurate and exceptional vision care, we take time to get these images with our patients so that together we are looking for the overall health of your eyes long term. At Trillium Eye Care, we only want what’s best for you.
