OPTOS RETINAL IMAGING -
Digital retinal imaging uses high-resolution imaging systems to take pictures of the inside of your eye. This helps our doctors assess the health of your retina and helps them to detect and manage such eye and health conditions as diabetes, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Finding retinal disorders as early as possible is critical to potentially preventing serious disease progression and even vision loss.
Here are just some of the diseases retinal imaging can help a VSP network doctor notice or see more closely:
OPTICAL COHERENCE tOMOGRaphy (oct) SCANNING-
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test. OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. An OCT scan can help our doctors to see what’s going on beneath the surface of your eye, providing a picture of the layers of your retina. This allows our doctors to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with diagnosis. They also provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and diseases of the retina. The optic nerve head is also visible at the back of your eye, so an OCT scan can also evaluate any disorders of the optic nerve.
These retinal diseases include age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.
