Digital Imaging is an advanced technology we are fortunate to have and use at Scenic Rim Optometrists. This means a photograph can be taken of your retina (often without need to dilate) with the ability to save this image with your patient file.
This image provides useful information about the health of the blood vessels, Retina, Macula in the back of your eye and helps with the assessment and monitoring of conditions such as Macula Degeneration, Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy.
If there are any signs of disease, the photo can be emailed to your doctor or Ophthalmologist for appropriate action. By using comparisons at future examinations, the photographs are a very useful reference to monitor changes in such eye conditions.
Retinal Imaging only take a few minutes and it is completely painless - similar to having your photo taken. If you have any inquiries or would like to have an image taken of your retina, phone or email our practice.
