In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Dr. Loock is proud to announce the inclusion of Digital Retinal Imaging with the Zeiss Visucam Pro as an integral part of your eye exam.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on, you might not notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina. The retina is the part of your eye that catches the image of what you are looking at, similar to the film in a camera.
A Digital Retinal Exam with the Zeiss Visucam provides:
- A scan to confirm a healthy eye or detect the presence of disease.
- An overview or map of the retina, giving Dr. Loock a more detailed view than she can achieve by other means.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the images of your eye with Dr. Loock at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your medical file, enabling Dr. Loock to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
Retinal imaging is non-invasive. Nothing touches your eye, we are simply taking a photograph. It is not an X-ray.
