Digital Retinal Imaging – The Latest Tech at Vision Source
Your eyes are a window to your health. Now your doctor at Vision Source can take a closer look with Optos: Ultra-Widefield Retinal Imaging. We are now offering this service, the latest digital retinal imaging technology on the market, to our patients.
What is the retina?
The retina is a delicate lining at the back of the eye, similar to film in a camera. Light strikes the retina through the lens in your eye and produces a picture which is then sent to the brain, enabling you to see. An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals to your brain which can result in impaired vision or blindness. Most retinal conditions and other diseases can be treated successfully with early detection.
The Optos ultra-widefield digital retinal imaging device helps you and your eye doctor make informed decisions about your eye health and overall well-being. Combining your eye doctor's expertise and Optos technology, Optos brings your comprehensive eye exam to life. Examining the retina is challenging, and traditional methods are carried out manually without any digital record.
The Optos digital retinal imaging device captures more than 80% of your retina in one image. Traditional methods typically ONLY reveal only 10-45% of your retina at one time.
The unique Optos ultra-widefield view enhances our ability to detect even the earliest sign of disease that appears on your retina. Seeing most of the retina at once allows your eye doctor more time to review your images and educate you about eye health.
Medical Eye Care
Your retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means, in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (including stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes) can be seen in the retina. Early detection is essential so treatments can be administered.
Eye Conditions Detectable by Optos Digital Retinal Imaging:
- Diabetic Retinopathy (damaged blood vessels inside the retina leading to blindness)
- Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
- Glaucoma (increased eye pressure)
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
During your examination, our doctors will:
- Record your visual and general health history
- Evaluate the health of your eyes including tests for glaucoma and cataracts
- Check for signs of high blood pressure, diabetes and other diseases that can be detected during the eye examination
- Measure distance and near visual abilities
- Test eye coordination and focusing skills
- Analyze and explain your visual problem
- Prescribe for your particular needs
