A picture is worth a thousand words! When it comes to the detection and treatment of eye conditions, the sooner the better.
Retinal imaging is a digital image taken of the retina which highlights in detail the central retina including the optic nerve head, retinal blood vessels and macula. This assists in the early detection and management of various eye diseases including glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, hypertension and several other conditions.
The retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be directly viewed non-invasively. In addition to ocular conditions, signs of other health conditions may sometimes be detected by examining the retina.
This is a painless test just like having your picture taken and only takes a few minutes. This advanced test provides Dr. Louis Bahoshy and the optometrists at Stoney Creek Eyecare with not only a detailed health assessment of your eye but also a benchmark in order to better detect any subtle changes in the future. Many eye conditions are diagnosed by detecting changes over time.
