Retinal Imaging and You

 

When you check in for your complete eye health evaluation appointment, you will be invited to read about Optomap retinal imaging. This is to introduce you to one of the key technologies that your doctor is prescribing to ensure you are receiving the most complete care of the health of your retina.

 

Most retinal diseases or conditions do not have symptoms in their early stages, and early detection is the key.  Retinal imaging allows a comprehensive view of the entire span of the retina, including blood vessels, macula and nerve tissue. This instrument aids in the detection of not only ocular abnormalities, but of many other health issues, such as diabetes and cardiovascular conditions. Having a baseline image is very important to compare with each yearly exam. That means that if you are blessed with a healthy retina, we still want to see that image yearly to keep it healthy!

 

It cannot be stressed enough that the Optos is not for adults only, or for people with excellent vision! People of all ages, demographics and visual status will benefit from retinal imaging. It is an unfortunate misconception that if a person is young or has no visual complaints, he or she has no need for a comprehensive eye health exam. In fact, Douglas Anderson developed the Optos after his 5-year-old son lost his vision due to an undiagnosed retinal detachment. Most retinal diseases or conditions do not have symptoms in their early stages, and early detection is the key. 

 

So, when the clinical technician indicates that it is now time for your retinal image, feel free to ask her any questions you may have, and rest assured that you are receiving the very best care possible!
