Digital Retinal Imaging
Digital retinal imaging allows our doctors to evaluate the light-sensitive lining inside your eye. The high magnification and sharp resolution of the retinal tissue helps detect subtle vision threatening eye disease and can indicate underlying health issues like diabetes and high blood pressure.
Every comprehensive eye exam should include an evaluation of the retina. Digital retinal imaging is our preferred method of retinal evaluation since it allows for comparison over time, analysis with computer software, and shows you what our doctor is examining. Digital retinal imaging reduces the likelihood of eye dilation, but does not replace it. Our doctors will let you know if eye dilation is still needed.
Most eye clinics charge a fee for digital retinal imaging that is not covered by insurance. At EyeLux Optometry, our patients receive digital retinal imaging as part of their comprehensive eye exam without an additional fee.
