Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina. Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy.
Optos CT is a non-invasive imaging technology that captures high-resolution images of the retina, choroid, and other structures in the eye. The benefits of this technology include the ability to detect and diagnose a variety of eye conditions, such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal detachment, leading to earlier treatment and better outcomes for patients. Additionally, Optos CT can help monitor the progression of these conditions and guide treatment decisions.
