Eye Exams: So Much More Than a Glasses Prescription

Thursday, November 07, 2019

Your annual eye exam is much more than answering the infamous question:  

 

"Which is better, 1 or 2?" 

Having a comprehensive eye exam is more like a physical checkup of the eyes in connection with your overall systemic health. By having a dilated examination, Clarus Fundus photograph, or Optos photograph performed, the doctor may be able to assess signs of glaucoma, diabetes, hypertension, tumors and much more! 

 

In fact, a view into the back of the eye is the only way your blood vessels can be viewed and assessed without having to make any cuts or incisions. Now I know what you are thinking. 

 

"What is a Clarus/Optos fundus photograph"? 

This new technology is simply a photograph taken of the back of the eyes reaching ranges of approximately 200 degrees to asses the peripheral and central structures of your eye all while avoiding the side effects of dilation including, but not limited to, light sensitivity and blurry vision up close for approximately 4-6 hours. 

 

That means you can visit your eye doctor, having the health of your eyes examined, and return back to your regularly scheduled day without having to wait for the effects of dilation to wear off! 

 

To get you scheduled for your annual eye exam with dilation and/or a Fundus Photograph, call (678)-892-2020 to schedule at one of our 8 convenient locations nearest you.
