State-of-the-Art, Retinal Diagnostic Technology
Standard Retinal Lasers Have Modernized
While lasers have been used in retinal diagnostic treatment for many years, patients and doctors alike know that the techniques and technologies of the past were far from perfect. Advances in ophthalmology technology over the past few years brought us pascal, micropulse, and the navigated laser.
The newest is the navigated laser, theNavilas® retinal laser OD-OS which causes less discomfort for patients and provides us with more precise treatment.
Our patients greatly benefit from ultra-widefield photography that give us superior visibility into all parts of the retina, even those that were previously unreachable. Most retinal cameras capture 30 degrees, but wide angle cameras capture 94% of the retina and with slight movements of the head they capture 98%.
These technologies, in combination with a thorough, standard eye exam, give us more complete information and allow us to make better decisions about your ongoing care and treatment.
Advanced Technology Onsite For Diagnosing Retinal Conditions
The Global Retina Institute also offers diagnostic technology not typically found in a standard retinal specialty practice. We provide our patients with state-of-the art eye exams that include front and back of the eye and orbital ultrasound technology. These technologies are so precise that they allow us to treat all ages, from newborn infants all the way up to our elderly patients.
Having all of these technologies onsite saves our patients the frustration of having to book additional appointments and travel to other facilities for specific testing. We do everything right here in our office, and provide you with a thorough explanation of testing and surgical procedures so that that you know exactly what to expect before, during, and after. Unlike others, we do not charge hidden or facility fees on top of the treatment.
