As part of our regular eye exam, your eyes will be dilated with medical eye drops that will allow the retina to be more clearly seen by our eye doctor who uses an ophthalmoscope to see the retina. We can also run a laser retina scan, with or without dilated eyes. A laser will scan your eyes and then produce digital pictures of your retinas. Our doctor will then check the images for any abnormalities. These images are also kept in your record so that the condition of your retina can be compared from one year to the next. Laser retina scans are great at detecting many retinal abnormalities, however it may not detect problems on the outside edges of the retina. For this reason we always want to check the retina in several different ways during our comprehensive eye exam. This is especially important if you are at high risk for developing a retinal condition. During a comprehensive eye exam many other tests will occur including tests for glaucoma and visual acuity. Your eyes may also be tested for dry eye, especially if you are having a comprehensive contact lens exam. During our comprehensive eye exam your eyes will be checked for many eye diseases and disorders including: cataracts; diabetic retinopathy; and macular degeneration. The sooner an eye disease is detected the more likely it is that treatment will be successful and that your precious vision will not be lost.
