Here at Southern Eye Care, PLLC, we are proud to offer retinal photos. Eye health is really important, and we use the retinal photos to ensure that we can catch problems early. It provides an image of your retina, allowing us to check out the health of your eyes.
This is important because many diseases can affect your eyes without your knowledge. Some diseases don’t even start to affect your vision until it is too late.
We are looking for macular degeneration, glaucoma, and other retinal problems (such as tears or detachments). People who suffer from diabetes and high blood pressure really need to have their eyes closely monitored for any changes that could cause them to lose their vision.
The best part about retinal imaging is that it makes getting images fast and easy. It is also painless. All you have to do is look inside of our machine and the light lets you know that the picture has been taken! We can keep the pictures in your file so we can monitor any changes that may occur over time.
