We start from the inside out.
“Standard of Care” dictates that the pupil be dilated so the doctor can have a broad unobstructed view of the inside of the eye. The effects of the dilating drops can last from two hours to two days. For the past 15 years, we’ve gone well beyond this by offering retinal imaging, first in Polaroid, now in digital format. Our retinal camera uses infrared light to dilate the pupil and an ultralow intensity flash to capture a high definition picture of the inside of the eye. This is important to detect lesions, bleeding, detachments, diabetes, kidney problems, aneurysms and a myriad of other problems.
