Anterior and Retinal Imaging

 

what is retinal imaging?

Retinal imaging allows us to take a high-definition, digital record of your eyes. The image captures the back of your eye (retina), through your pupil, to allow the optic nerve, macula and retinal blood vessels to be seen in great detail.

At theeyecarecompany, we use the latest in retinal imaging equipment to capture high details images of not only the back of the eye, but the front structures of the eye as well.

 

why would I need imaging?

Imaging is very useful in early detection of diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetes and glaucoma.

Even if we see no signs of eye diseases, imaging is highly recommended as a baseline record of your eye health; it provides an accurate recording of the appearance of your eye structures at the time of the imaging, giving us a baseline of your eye health and a more detailed method of tracking if there have been any changes to your eye health that need monitoring or further management.

 

does it hurt? any eye drops involved?

Imaging is as simple and painless as taking a photograph of your eyes, but with a highly detailed microscope and a well-trained optometrists eye to spot any changes or abnormalities.

Usually eye drops are not required, however if eye drops are required then your theeyecarecompany optometrist will advise you at that point.
