Leading technology is critical to early diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. Many patients don’t realize that early detection of eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration can often prevent these diseases from causing further complications. Early symptoms of many other medical problems, including diabetes, hypertension, thyroid problems and high cholesterol, can also be detected during a J. Galt eye exam. That is why regular eye exams, performed by caring doctors using state-of-the-art equipment, are so critical for your overall health.
A critical component to diagnosing common eye problems is our Optomap Retinal Exam. This scanning laser ophthalmoscope is a screening tool that produces high-resolution color images of your retina, which reveals any abnormalities that can be precursors to disease. These images become a permanent part of your medical record and will aid our doctors in looking at changes to your eyes over time. This machine is an important diagnostic tool for early detection of diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration.
