Digital Retinal Photographs

Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. We offer digital retinal photographs as an important part of our eye exams. The digital retinal photograph produces an image that is as unique as you fingerprint and provides us with a wide view to look at the health of your retina. The retina is the part of your eye that captures the image of what you are looking at, similar to film in a camera.

Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.

A digital retinal photograph provides:

  • A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease.
  • A view of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view than he/she can get by other means.
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss the digital retinal photograph of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
  • A permanent record for your file, which allows us to view your images each year to look for changes.

The digital retinal photograph is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages.  To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The digital retinal photograph is shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you.

Please schedule your digital retinal photograph at Bridlewood Eye Care today!
