Opto Retinal Scans at Your Next Ophthalmology Appointment
Our eye doctors at Peninsula Ophthalmology Group serve the Bay Area, including Daly City, San Francisco, and Burlingame. We use the best eye care technology to provide quality care for our patients. This technology includes opto retinal scans. These scans produce accurate information about the structure of your retina, providing crucial information about the health of your eyes.
The Benefits of Opto Retinal Scans
Retinal scans are not required for everybody, but they can provide additional information about the health of your eyes. For example, the eye doctor has better insight into the structure of your eye before proceeding with a major eye surgery thanks to the scan. Not only is the view more accurate, but the images can be enlarged to provide greater detail.
As a bonus, the scan takes just a few minutes. You can also count on the retinal scan to be safe. You will be comfortable during the scan, which is completely painless. In fact, patients of all ages, from young children to seniors, can undergo a scan with no issues.
Opto Retinal Scans Detect Serious Problems
A scan of the retina can draw attention to serious conditions like macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and holes in the retina. Furthermore, an eye doctor can spot signs of diabetic retinopathy that can impact your vision in the future. Early treatment can slow the progression of vision loss.
Opto Retinal Scans Are Not Regular Eye Exams
A regular eye exam typically involves dilation of the eyes, during which time the eye doctor will look at your retinas for signs that something is wrong. Retinal scans provide more information. The eye doctor does not have to dilate your eyes during the scan, which means you will leave your appointment without the light sensitivity that you may have grown to expect.
