St. Louis Missouri Optometrist
Manchester Missouri Retinal Imaging
Most people feel it is necessary to visit their eye doctor when they notice a change in their vision. However, it is also important to have the back of your eyes (retinas) examined each year regardless of a change in vision. Some diseases may present with clinical changes to specific layers of the retinal tissue that form the inside lining of our eyes. Examining the retina allows us a very unique view of your circulatory system. Did you know this is the only area of our bodies where we can directly view arteries?
Digital imaging of the retina helps diagnose early onset of diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetes, hypertension, glaucoma, and some cancers. There is a $30 fee for this service.
