Harris Blake & Parsons are delighted to provide you with the latest technology from Zeiss enabling us to provide the optimum care for your eyes. Retinal imaging using the superb new Zeiss Visucam camera helps us to diagnose, monitor and record many eye and health disorders. High resolution digital images of the retina are recorded for future reference and assessment.
Monitoring of the diabetic effects on the eye using the camera is an excellent way to assess the effectivity of treatment and preventing development of proliferative retinopathy which can result in severe vision loss.
We recommend retinal imaging be conducted at your examination for early detection of eye disease or if you have a family history of these conditions:
- Macular Degeneration
- High Blood pressures
- Heart disease
- Elevated Cholesterol
- Nervous system disorders
- Blood disorders
Retinal imaging provides a stored digital image of the state of your current eye health and can be easily compared against any changes that may occur in the future. Research is showing that it can be very useful as a predictor of future cardio-vascular problems.
Unlike some other optometry practices, your retinal imaging will be conducted by your qualified optometrist, never a technician or another staff member. We believe this allows the optometrist to get to know you and your eyes more thoroughly than if the imaging was conducted by another person. Your optometrist will then have an opportunity to explain your results on the spot and recommend further tests if needed.
