The iWellness scan is an easy-to-read report that displays the thickness of your retina and your ganglion cell complex as compared to a database of normal eyes. These metrics along with a high-resolution image and symmetry analysis help to identify if you are displaying the early signs of retinal disease or glaucoma.
Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. In our continuing efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Eye Health Consultants is proud to announce the inclusion of the iWellness Exam as an important part of our complete eye examination.
Similar to an MRI or CT scan for the eye, the wellness exam uses spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) to produce cross-sectional images of the retinal layers – which is a sensitive area of the back of your eye – in a matter of seconds.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress without symptoms. In the 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 exam of the retina, including the iWellnessExam.
The iWellness Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable for patients of all ages and provides your doctor with valuable information about the health of your most precious gift – your sight.
Detailed SD-OCT scan reports to show a healthy eye or detect early signs of disease.
Thickness maps of the retina and ganglion cell complex give your doctor detailed information simply not available with other methods.
The opportunity for you to view and discuss your iWellnessExam scan reports with your doctor at the time of your exam.
