Early detection of ocular disease is your best weapon against vision loss. At Focus West Optometry, we use our retinal camera to capture an image of the retina to better compare small changes from year to year. We can compare by overlaying them or viewing them side by side. This allows us to detect and treat even the slightest changes before any visual problems occur. Conditions like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration benefit from early detection where changes can often happen before any noticeable symptoms occur. Our camera can also take one dimensional and three dimensional photos that aid us in our referrals to ophthalmologists and specialists. This helps to better relay our concerns and provide prompt treatment. We recommend that all patients take this test, especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes, retinal diseases, or eye related issues in their background. Contact us today to learn more.
