360 Eyecare – Metro offers digital retinal imaging when you visit us for your eye examination. These images in some cases can take place of the pupil dilating drops. With this new technology, digital retinal imaging provides your optometrist with detailed images of the back of your eye. Our software (a digital retinal scanner) allows your optometrist to store, review and enhance the images of your eye to clearly record your current eyes’ health. Future photos can be compared to detect any changes to your retina at the time of your next scheduled eye examination.
Our office strongly encourages the use of this new technology as an integral tool in determining eye health status as well as creating a detailed permanent record of the condition of your eyes. Your optometrists at 360 Eyecare – Metro have invested in this latest technology because we are committed to providing you with the highest standard of eye care available.
