This camera allows us to look at 200 degrees of the back of the eye, called the retina, to assess conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, macular degeneration, and glaucoma to name a few. We will also take time to show and explain your pictures in a way that you will enjoy and understand no matter what age.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
The OCT is another simple, non-invasive imaging test. It’s similar to an MRI or CT scan used by other doctors like Neurologists. It allows the doctor to assess individual layers of the retina. Conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.
This is the “stress test” or “EKG” of the eyes. This machine measures the ability of your eyes to adjust from going from a bright environment to dark. Therefore it allows us to test night blindness and macular degeneration. Usually supplements, dietary changes and exercise can be adjusted to slow, halt or even improve night vision loss.
