TO SEE INTERNAL EYE STRUCTURES!
Your Eye Doctor needs to see the internal eye structures of your eyes to determine if your eyes are healthy.
You can move your mouse over the image above to see what your Eye Doctor sees during your Dilated eye health exam. The doctor can see your optic nerve, your retina, your macula and your blood vessels inside your eyes. Your doctor is looking for eye health changes like bleeding in your retina, tumors in your retina, macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes, tears, detachments etc.
Most eye health issues DO NOT cause symptoms until it is too late…that is why is it VERY IMPORTANT to have an eye exam every 12 months – even if your vision is not blurry and has not changed at all.
Examining internal eye health can also help your Eye Doctor determine if you may have any SYSTEMIC problems going on that you may be unaware of – such as: Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Cancer, High Cholesterol, Brain Tumors, Multiple Sclerosis, Sickle Cell Anemia…and many, many more.
