Retinal Digital Imaging-No Drops Examination
The Comprehensive Exam at Florida Optical always includes a Retinal Screening with an Imaging System that requires no dilation. The OPtometrist Screenis for Cataracts, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, as well as numerous other eye diseases.
Glaucoma is a silent disease. Adults and children could have high intraocular pressure. Our Optometrist uses a "soft Puff" tonometer to measure eye pressure. Also, a Visual Field is performed to determine if your peripheral vision is compromised. If you have high pressure that may damage the optic nerve requires medical treatment.
Our Optometrists screen for macular degeneration. Macular Degeneration is a disease that causes the fovea centralis to lose its health by making it prone to dryness areas known as drussens as well as attracting abnormal vessels that may bleed.
To some degree, Cataract are directly related to aging. The yellowing and opacification of the crystalline lens causes that you experience glare as well as a blurry image. Our optometrist will screen your eyes for any sign of cataracts and prescribe solutions such as antireflective coatings to reduce the glare you might experience at night or during sunnydays. Having cataracts does not mean you need to have surgery immediately.
Diabetes is a condition in which excess sugar in the body affects the eyes, making them prone to retinal bleeds. Additionally, the refractive error may fluctuate.
Dry eyes happen to everyone. The lack of tears or their poor quality affects millions of patients. Dry eyes cause irritation and blurry vision. The eye doctor may prescribe drops or medication to treat this condition
