Digital Retinal Imaging

A computerized instrument now allows us to provide you with a MORE THOROUGH medical analysis of your eye. The digital retinal imaging camera takes digital pictures of the retina (nerve layer inside the back of the eye). This procedure assists the doctor in the early detection of many disorders including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, hypertensive retinopathy, and other sight threatening conditions. The pictures are stored in our database and will be used to compare with future images to observe for any further changes in the health inside your eyes.

The doctor strongly recommends that ALL patients have this procedure performed routinely. If you are 40 years and older, the doctor recommends YEARLY photos. It is especially important for people who have:

1. Headaches

2. Diabetes

3. High blood pressure

4. High cholesterol/ triglycerides

5. 40 years of age and older

6. Family history of Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, and or blindness

7. Family History of Diabetes or High blood pressure

8. NEW PATIENTS

Medical and vision insurances DO NOT pay for routine photos. THE CHARGE FOR ROUTINE PHOTOS IS $43. If there is a medical diagnosis found, your medical insurance may pay for this procedure. This usually requires a written interpretation or report by the doctor and additional fees will be submitted to your insurance company. The doctor will NOT know prior to your exam if there is a medical diagnosis that would allow for insurance submission.
