The future of diagnostic eyecare is here!
Rosenthal Eye Surgery is proud to announce our new Wellness Exam. This new imaging technology allows us to see deeper into the retina (the light sensitive part in the back of the eye) than ever before. This allows us to detect diseases earlier, diagnose them more quickly, and treat problems BEFORE they can cause profound and irreversible visual loss.
Had a routine eye exam recently? This test is far more sensitive than any normal dilated exam. It can identify very subtle changes in the back of the eye that would otherwise go unnoticed. Think of a normal retinal exam as a fisherman looking out on top of the water, and this test as a scuba diver.
This scan is able to detect multiple pathologies with exceptional clarity and sensitivity including: Dry macular degeneration, Wet macular degeneration, Diabetic retinopathy, Diabetic macular edema, Glaucoma, Thinning of the retinal nerve fiber layer, Retinitis pigmentosa, Hypovitaminosis A, Vitreomacular traction, Macular pucker, Ischemia (stroke) in the optic vessels, Retinal detachment, Cotton wool spots, Macular nevus, Cupping of the optic disc, as well as multiple other pathologic conditions and disorders of the posterior eye.
It is a high definition, high resolution, cross-sectional, 20-layer view of the retina, optic nerve, macula, fovea, optic cup, and optic disc.
It is a very brief, but extraordinarily sensitive examination. This screening test uses complex algorithms and technology known as laser interferometry to measure the density, depth, and shape of multiple components within your eye to provide the most information possible. Its spectral domain camera can take up to 50,000 A-scans per second, for flawless, real-time imaging. Your test results are instantly compared to thousands of others in your demographic to provide information regarding any deviation from the standard curve.
We will discuss your results with you at the time of the exam, and you get to keep your results for future reference!
