Retinal Exam with HD Photos
At Fulton EyeCare Center, you can count on state-of-the art treatment. Early detection of retina and optic nerve damage is essential to treatment and life-long eye health. Because of this, Dr. Fulton has invested in a specialized camera that produces a digital 3D image of the retina, in order to thoroughly examine, compare, and detect retina surface problems. Very few optometrists in Oklahoma offer this advanced level of care which provides the technology for treatment and detection many eye diseases.
Dr. Fulton, says: “The camera takes a photographic image of the retina so we can see the optic nerve head, blood vessels, macula etc. and detect the early signs of things like glaucoma, diabetes and high blood pressure. On rare occasions we can detect things that are more serious, even life-threatening.” Retinal photography in optometry is essential when treating medical conditions that affect the eye. For healthy eyes, the opportunity to have a digital picture of the surface of your retina each time you visit is important because when compared over time, subtle changes can be detected and treated early.
3D optic nerve imaging captures, in detail, the blood vessels and retina nerves of the eye. Any damage from diabetes, high blood pressure or macular disease can be detected with these images. These can also be taken each visit, giving Dr. Fulton an insight into subtle changes in the size of arteries or veins, and the opportunity to see under the surface of the retina. Similar to dental x-rays, optic nerve imaging will give Dr. Fulton a picture of your eye health beyond the surface.
Retinal photography is recommended to ALL patients, not just those with an eye health challenge. The images below show a few photos taken at Fulton EyeCare Center
