Texas Eye Consultants now provides patients with the latest generation in retinal tomography, a technology that empowers the doctor to diagnose retinal conditions such as glaucoma, macular geneneration and diabetic eye disease, earlier on; it also affords an unsurpassed system to manage such conditions. Spectral Domain OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography) is the latest addition to this very technologically advanced eye clinic.
In addition to Spectral Domain OCT, Texas Eye Consultants encourages patients to have a quick, affordable and non-invasive iWellnessExam™ which uses the same breakthrough technology. Similar to an MRI or CT scan, the iWellnessExam captures high definition cross sectional images of your retina, which is the back of your eye, and allows our doctors to see in unprecedented clarity what may be invisible with traditional examination methods.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress without symptoms. In early stages, you may not even notice a change in your vision. But sight threatening conditions and diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and others can be detected with a thorough evaluation of the retina, including the iWellnessExam.
The iWellnessExam is a fast, simple procedure that provides:
- A detailed SD-OCT scan report to show a healthy eye or detect very early signs of disease.
- A retinal thickness map and ganglion cell complex assessment giving your doctor detailed information simply not available with other methods.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss your iWellnessExam report with your doctor at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your file, which allows Dr. Arroyo to compare your iWellnessExam reports each year to look for changes.
