DIGITAL RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHIC EXAMINATION
Morgan Vision Care is proud to offer our patients a state of the art image of the inner eye, which provides a more
thorough eye exam. Using our highly advanced Digital Retinal Photography, we are able to screen for eye diseases within
the retina, which dramatically improves our ability to evaluate your retinal health.
Some of the diseases we will be screening for include, but are not limited to: retinal detachments, glaucoma, macular
degeneration, retinal holes, as well as diabetic retinopathy (all of which may lead to partial loss of vision and/or
blindness). In addition, systemic diseases such as diabetes and the effects of high blood pressure may also be detected
during this exam. However, if you have already been diagnosed with diabetes, you are required to be dilated at least
once a year. Therefore, if this is your first visit for the year, we will plan to dilate you today and you are welcome to
return within the year to receive the digital retinal photographic examination.
EARLY DETECTION OF EYE DISEASE IS CRUCIAL
An annual Digital Retinal Photograph is recommended in order to evaluate your retina at up to 100 times its normal size.
You can expect the following from this exam:
- In depth view of the retinal surface (where diseases first manifest themselves)
- Evaluation and explanation of your retinal images from Dr. Morgan
- Permanent record for your medical file for serial analysis, comparisons, and diagnosis
- Fast, easy and comfortable
- Typically, no dilation drops are needed
Insurance is designed to cover a basic eye exam, therefore, it does not cover this procedure. The additional fee is
