DIGITAL RETINAL IMAGING
We are pleased to inform you of the addition of an instrument that compliments our comprehensive list of 21st century, state of the art equipment. DIGITAL RETINAL IMAGING combines the technology of retinal photography and computerized digital imaging to produce remarkably clear retinal images which can be viewed by the doctor and you. This computerized technology aids us by establishing valuable baseline images of the inside of your eyes. We can then compare these images with future images and carefully observe any normal or abnormal changes. We believe this will promote earlier diagnosis of many abnormal vision conditions, some of which can result in permanent vision loss if not caught and treated in a timely manner.
We recommend DIGITAL RETINAL IMAGING every year for patients who are at risk of developing eye disease, such as diabetics, patients with high blood pressure, those at risk for age related macular degeneration, and those with a family history of glaucoma.
For those individuals who already show some type of retinal abnormality, retinal imaging is medically necessary and will be performed at the interval deemed appropriate by the doctor.
