We use the most up-to-date technology to ensure the best eye care possible.
Optos Retinal Imaging
Optomap retinal imaging is painless, quick and the doctor’s preferred method of evaluating the health of your eye for all ages. This technology can be used without dilation to give a widefield view of the retina so it has no visual side effects. Through this digital imaging of the retina, we can observe early changes in the eye relating to glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. It enhances our ability to detect and monitor retinal defects associated with common systemic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, and thyroid problems.
OCT Wellness Scan
OCT is a new, completely painless and highly advanced screening system that checks for potentially serious conditions with the retina including the macula and optic nerve. the oct provides a deep view of the retina and pairs with the optos photos for the most advanced screening for eye disease. this scan is advised for patients age 60 and up and when risk factors are present for glaucoma, diabetes, macular disease, floatersor other eye health disorders.
Pupil dilation is when we utilize drops to dilate (open) the pupil so the doctor is able to view the back of the eye to detect eye diseases like macular degeneration and glaucoma. The doctor will also be able to detect other health conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Some side effects from the drops are blurred vision and light sensitivity that can last up to 6 hours.
