Digital retinal imaging is an advanced diagnostic tool that is used to effectively detect and diagnose a wide range of abnormalities within the retina, the light-sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eye.
The highly magnified images can be used to evaluate the health of parts of the eye that include the following:
- Optic nerve
Conditions Diagnosed with Digital Retinal Imaging
Digital retinal imaging allows for a comparison of the retina over time. Some of the conditions that may be detected with digital retinal imaging include the following:
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Macular degeneration
- Retinal detachment
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
Digital retinal imaging can help track any changes within the retinal tissue that may indicate early signs of disease as well as assess the progression of certain diseases.
