ATTENTION PATIENTS – Pittsburgh Retinal Screening
We are excited to announce that we have incorporated a new, highly sophisticated computerized Digital Retinal Imaging Photography Camera system into our practice to perform retinal screenings.
Because of the high level of sensitivity of this device, it can help us better detect “early” disease such as Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Hypertension, Macular Degeneration, Tumors and other retinal problems.
Even for the young and older patients, this photography device can help us establish a base line photo which we can then use to compare to your subsequent photos in the future to detect changes in your retina.
We recommend that all of our patients receive this evaluation. It is especially important for those patients that have a history of glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, floaters or flashes of light, a strong eye glass prescription or have immediate family members who suffer from glaucoma, diabetes or macular degeneration.
