A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Rainbow Optometry has a camera to take pictures of the inside of your eyes (the retina)!
Even if you see the same doctor year after year, notes are still not as good as a clear picture of exactly what the inside of your eyes looked like in the past. With this technology, no matter which of our doctors you see, they will be able to see exactly what your eyes looked like during previous exams,and can better detect subtle changes.
This test is especially important if you have a personal history of glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, high blood pressure, headaches, floaters, flashes of light, or a strong/high eyeglass prescription, or family history of glaucoma, macular degeneration, or retinal detachment.
These are some examples of eye conditions that we can see with our retinal camera:
The cost of taking a screening photo of your retina is $35. Let us know if you would like your eyes’ pictures taken!
