Retinal Imaging: More than Just an Eye Exam in Morrisville, NC
The Zeiss Visucam Pro is a revolutionary device in the field of retinal imaging technology that allows your eye doctor to take high resolution photographs of the retina, including the optic nerve, retinal blood vessels, vitreous cavity, macula and peripheral retina, in order to help diagnose vision and eye diseases associated with the retina and the human body overall. It can help detect a number of common and sometimes dangerous eye conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, retinal tumors, macular degeneration and glaucoma. Another device for detecting glaucoma is the Zeiss Humphrey Matrix.
With this new Visucam technology, Dr. Prajapati is able to take a detailed retinal photo which, along with having the eye dilated, noticeably increases what he is able to see when examining a patient’s eyes during a routine eye exam. It also allows Dr. Prajapati to compare new photos of a patient’s eyes to images of the patient’s eye from previous years, in order to more easily track changes that may signal a possible problem.
The eye care team at Triangle Family Eye Care recommends that the Zeiss Visucam Pro be a part of all comprehensive eye exams. However, it is especially important for those with diabetes, uncontrolled high blood pressure, risk of glaucoma or macular degeneration, as well as those who suffer sudden vision loss or headaches related to vision.
