Eye exams, including a thorough retinal evaluation, are important to protect your vision. Sight threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and others often have no outward signs or symptoms in early stages. In an effort to provide a more thorough eye exam, we have incorporated the i Vue® SD-OCT by OPTOVUE as part of our comprehensive eye exam.
Taking only seconds to perform, the iWellnessExam™ screening provides high definition cross sections of your retina and optic nerve which can reveal signs of disease in exquisite detail that are not visible to traditional examination methods. The test is like an ultrasound, but with harmless light waves instead of sound waves . This unique technology can help detect potentially vision threatening and systemic diseases in their very early stages.
