Optos Retinal Imaging

Since January 2004, our office has employed the Optos Digital Scanning Ophtthmoscope. This allows us to digitally photograph up to 220 degrees of the inside of each eye. This is one of the best ways to look for any eye related disease or systemic diseases (diabetes, high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis and atherosclerosis).

These images are stored and are a reference point for comparison year to year.

Dilated Retinal Exam

For those patients identified as being at risk for retinal diseases, a dilated retina exam allows your doctor to carefully evaluate this area of the eye. Here’s a few of the things you will be examined for:

Dilation of the eyes clearly has many benefits and only a few temporary side effects. Some patients may notice mildly blurred vision, light sensitivity, and difficulty reading. These effects typically last for two to five hours. If you would like to have a dilated retina exam but cannot do so at the time of your exam, let you doctor know and he will gladly reschedule it for a more convenient time.
