At Visique Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt, we provide digital imaging for all our patients. Our state-of-the-art Digital Retinal Camera allows us to take a high-resolution image of the back of your eye. This allows a more detailed and wider-angled view than would normally be achieved with conventional observation methods.
It shows detailed images of the internal eye structures and it can show abnormalities that may threaten vision. It greatly aids in the ability to accurately diagnose and document many diseases as well as providing a baseline for comparison with previous and future visits. It is a permanent clinical record to closely monitor even the slightest progression or abnormality so the subtle, early signs of an eye condition can be captured.
This technology is especially valuable in detecting and monitoring slow developing, sight-threatening conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration and the eye-related effects of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
Your retinal images are stored on our servers to monitor future changes using our comparison software from visit to visit.
