Wellness Screening & Retina Imaging

Wellness Screening & Retina Imaging

We pride ourselves on providing our patients with the best possible standard of care. Because of this, we recommend the Wellness Screening retinal scan on all of our patients during their annual eye exam. The Wellness Screening takes an image of the back of your eye where potential vision threatening disease can be found. Those diseases include diabetes, glaucoma, certain cancers, retinal tears and cardiovascular issues. Along with ruling out potential diseases, the Wellness Screening will allow our Doctors to have a baseline image to compare your eye health year after year. 

 

As part of your pre-work up we can capture retinal images during your visit today. All images will be reviewed by your Doctor. If you have any questions about your images our Doctors are always happy to discuss them with you. Please note, when the Wellness Screening is performed, you will less likely be recommended to be dilated unless the Doctor states otherwise. If you have any questions about the process or fees feel free to ask our staff.

Common Questions

Does it hurt?

No.  It is completely comfortable and the scan takes less than a few seconds.

What’s the benefit of a wellness screening?

The photo and ultrasound may help the doctor detect problems more quickly and easily. Unlike traditional retinal exams (dilation only), images can be saved for future comparisons.

 

How often should I have the wellness screening?

This is a decision that should be made by your doctor.  However, it is generally recommended that you have a wellness screening each time you have an annual eye exam.
