DIGITAL RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY

        

A highly sophisticated computerized instrument allows us to provide you with a more thorough medical analysis of your eyes.  The digital retinal imaging system takes images of the retina (the back of your eye).  This procedure assists the doctor in early detection and follow-up care of many disorders, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and other vision threatening conditions.  The images will be stored in the computer and compared with images at future exams.  This allows the doctor to observe even the smallest amount of change from the previous procedure. 

  

The doctor strongly recommends that all patients have this procedure performed.  It is especially important for:

NEW PATIENTS      CHILDREN      PATIENTS OVER 40
