Visit Moorestown Eye Associates for Digital Retinal Imaging Sevices
Drs. Les Friedman, Kimberly Friedman, Anna Mellinger, & David Kong have acquired the latest technology in digital imaging and networking to help in the diagnosis of eye diseases. The high-tech camera is networked into each exam room so that the doctors can access digital images of your eyes during your eye examination. The doctors have used the camera to help diagnose several cases of diabetes, high blood pressure, and glaucoma. In fact, the doctors have also used this technology for "telemedicine" -transmitting photos of patients in Moorestown to doctors at CHOP and Wills Eye for those patients that required further intervention.
Your retinal Images will be stored electronically.
This gives the eye doctor a permanent record of the condition and state of your retina.
This is very important in assisting your Optometrist to detect and measure any changes to your retina each time you get your eyes examined, as many eye conditions, such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration are diagnosed by detecting changes over time.
The advantages of digital imaging include:
- Quick, safe, non-invasive and painless
- Provides detailed images of your retina and sub-surface of your eyes
- Provides instant, direct imaging of the form and structure of eye tissue
- Image resolution is extremely high quality
- Uses eye-safe near-infra-red light
- No patient prep required
Digital Retinal Imaging
Digital Retinal Imaging allows your eye doctor to evaluate the health of the back of your eye, the retina. It is critical to confirm the health of the retina, optic nerve, and other retinal structures. The digital camera snaps a high-resolution digital picture of your retina. This picture clearly shows the health of your eyes and is used as a baseline to track any changes in your eyes in future eye examinations.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology. Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye.
A scanning laser used to analyze the layers of the retina and optic nerve for any signs of eye disease, similar to an CT scan of the eye. It works using light without radiation and is essential for early diagnosis of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinal disease.
With an OCT scan, doctors are provided with color-coded, cross-sectional images of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy.
An OCT scan is a noninvasive, painless test. It is performed in about 10 minutes right in our office. Feel free to contact our office to inquire about an OCT at your next appointment.
Moorestown Eye Associates is a Dry Eye Center of Excellence
We are proud to be one of the few local dry eye clinics that have obtained specialized testing and advanced education in ocular surface/dry eye disease. Moorestown Eye Associates is a Dry Eye Center of Excellence and utilizes TearLab analysis to diagnose and monitor treatment effectiveness in Dry Eye Disease. TearLab testing determines your tear osmolarity, which provides significant information about your tear chemistry.
With its objective, quantitative endpoint, TearLab Osmolarity correlates to increasing disease severity and enables your doctor to monitor your response to treatment.
The test is fast, easy, and accurate – requiring only 50-nanoliters of tear for analysis – a sample smaller than the period at the end of this sentence. It is also more patient friendly than older generation tests, as it is not intrusive, and requires no anesthesia and is completely painless.
