How We Use Retinal Photo To Diagnose Eye Diseases
Digital Retinal Imaging works by taking pictures of the inside of the eye. It’s a useful tool to help doctors better teach patients about their health, as well as in detecting eye and other health concerns early on. With these images, they’re able to compare photos year over year and show patients what looks great, might be concerning and what has changed in their eyes over time.
It is the key technology responsible for helping with the early detection of diseases like Diabetes, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Hypertension and Cancer too. Age-related Macular Degeneration can be detected with a picture of leaking fluid or bleeding in the back of the eye, while a dark spot in the back of the eye could signal a cancer like Melanoma. With early detection, these health conditions will be more easily treated and can help prevent vision loss in the future.
