Eye Exam - Detect Eye diseases early - iWellness | Plainview NY
iWellness – Eye Exam
Here at Optix Family Eyecare Center an iWellness scan using Spectral-Domain OCT technology is recommended for all of our patients. This special screening test and eye exam helps to detect early structural changes or damage to the inside of the eye that is not yet visible for the eye doctor to see with the current viewing magnifying lenses that are traditionally used. It also creates a baseline evaluation of your normal values to compare to future testing to determine if any changes occur with time. This type of prophylactic testing helps to screen for an eye disease that may otherwise go undetected.
Glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and others are sight threatening diseases that can have no symptoms. Incorporating this exam is important for a thorough evaluation to help protect vision. If the iWellness reveals pathology, additional tests are ordered. Eyesight is precious; it’s our main focus to protect yours.
