Testing for eye diseases is very important to your ocular health. There are so many reasons why the friendly and experienced professionals here at the office of Shannon Chandler, O.D. and Lesa Davis, O.D. are the answer to all of your eye care needs. We use state of the art equipment and the most advanced eye care techniques to test your eyes.
Dr. Chandler and Dr. Davis are pleased to provide patients with an advanced digital retinal exam called EyeScreen. EyeScreen is a high resolution photograph of your retina which will help us document, review, and compare your retina over time. We use the EyeScreen Exam to document your retinal image for our charts, screen for many eye diseases and improve our ability to view your internal retinal health at a much higher resolution than a slit lamp or ophthalmoscope. Dr. Chandler and Dr. Davis are concerned about retinal problems such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes, detachment, and diabetic retinopathy (all of which can lead to partial loss of vision or blindness). Additionally, many signs of systemic diseases such as diabetes, the effects of high blood pressure and other diseases can be detected with the EyeScreen Examination.
Dilation is another method to test for eye diseases and an alternative to the EyeScreen Exam offered by Dr. Chandler and Dr. Davis. Dilating the pupils with medicated eye drops allows our optometrists to view more of the inner eye in order to detect problems such as retinal tears, tumors, glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and damage to the eyes from many health conditions. Side effects of dilation are difficulty reading and light sensitivity for 3 to 5 hours. Our doctors will give you dark glasses to wear home.
Dr. Chandler and Dr. Davis highly recommend having either the EyeScreen or the dilation done with your yearly eye exam to more thoroughly test for eye diseases. We will take the time to review all the findings with you and answer any questions you may have regarding your eye health and these eye tests.
