Digital Fundus Photography
Just as many other health professionals use MRI's, mammograms or X-rays to aid in diagnosing health conditions, our office provides a comparable level of quality care with digital retinal photos. The photo is quick, easy and comfortable and allows a detailed view of the inner lining of the eye often without the need of dilation.
We generally recommend a baseline photo for every patient to be followed periodically with updated photos for further evaluation.
Additionally, we strongly recommend a photo for patients with a personal or family history of high blood pressure, diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes, or detachments.
An enhanced, high-resolution digital image of the blood vessels and the inner lining of the eye.
The image becomes part of your permanent medical record allowing us to monitor for future changes.
Facilitates the early diagnosis of many health conditions including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, macular degeneration and glaucoma.
Generally insurance does not cover preventative care or the $18 fee of routine retinal photos; as a result, you will be responsible.
