Digital Retinal Imaging

Early detection of any retinal abnormality is crucial.

The sensitive tissue that makes up the retina is susceptible to a variety of diseases that can ultimately lead to partial loss of vision or even complete blindness.

Previously this could only be done by dilating the pupil, and even then, the information that can be gathered by this new technology, in seconds, far exceeds that of a routine dilated examination (but does not replace dilation).

The DRI examination is simple: at the push of a button we can generate a computer image of your retina for immediate review.

Since no drops are needed (in most cases), you will not experience blurred vision or sensitivity to light following your retinal imaging. It is important to note, however, that should any abnormaility be detected or if we cannot abtain an acceptable image, dilation may be necessary.
