We would like to introduce you to a new technology that is available to monitor your eye health. Dr. Shorrock recommends these procedures to: all new patients, those over 55, anyone with high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol or headaches. If you have any history of floaters or flashing lights or macular degeneration or if you have any family history of any eye related issues, we recommend retinal photos.
Digital Retinal Imaging
Our office recommends a new state-of-the-art diagnostic procedure call Digital Retinal Imaging. The digital retinal imaging system takes photographs of your retina (the back of your eye). This procedure assistant the doctor in the early detection of many disorders, including cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and other vision threatening conditions. These images are stored in the computer and are compared with images from future exams.
FDT Visual Field Screening
Our office recommends a new Computerized Virtual Field Screening every year to all of our patients. The visual field testing allow us to check your optic nerve health by testing the function of the connections between your eyes and your brain. This procedure assists the doctor in early detection of many disorders including glaucoma, brain tumors, multiple sclerosis, retinal detachments, and many other disorders.
