Do you dislike being dilated? Does being blurry and light sensitive for several hours ruin the rest of your day? If you answered yes, then we have a solution for you! Optos retinal imaging is capable of capturing an image up to 200 degrees of the back of the eye in less than 0.4 seconds without the dilation, thus skipping the side effects. The ability to see out in the periphery of the retina allows for detection of potential sight threatening conditions. The image is captured in different wavelengths so that different layers can be examined. The digital image is kept securely in our database so that the doctors can monitor for any changes. It is suitable for patients of all ages, so come see your retina today!
Here at James R. Dugue Optometry, we strive to upgrade our technology with the purpose of improving patient care. Recently, we've acquired a few instruments and equipment that help us do that. The first one is an adapter to our Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT) that allows us to fully visualize the front of the eye. This allows us to better evaluate specialty contact lenses, narrow angle glaucoma, and more. In narrow angle glaucoma, it allows us to identify patients who are at risk, which traditionally involves a lens touching the eye.
