Ultra-widefield imaging

Did you know that some of the most destructive eye diseases occur in the far periphery of the eye?

Issues like retinal tears, ocular tumours and diabetic retinopathy often occur in the far reaches of the eye making for difficult detection and potential complications. And since symptoms don’t usually manifest until the later stages of these diseases, significant and irrecoverable damage often occurs.

Thankfully, there is a solution.

What is ultra-widefield imaging?

Ultra-widefield imaging captures a wide, high-resolution image of your retina, giving a far more comprehensive assessment of your eyes when compared to a regular eye exam.

While a traditional retinal camera only accesses a 45-degree view of the retina, the ultra-widefield camera allows for a much larger, 200-degree scope.

Getting your eyes checked with this technology guarantees you’re getting a complete assessment of exactly what’s going on with your ocular health.

Why is an ultra-widefield exam so important?

Offering a far more comprehensive assessment of your eyes when compared to a basic eye test, this imaging gives you and your optometrist a bigger picture of what’s going on with your eyes and overall eye health. It’s a great way to thoroughly examine the eye and spot any issues early – even if they’re present at the very back of the eye.

Examining the peripheral retina is essential, even if your eyes are healthy. By documenting your retina’s health on a regular basis, your optometrist can compare images, detect subtle changes over time and tackle any issues early.

We’re here to help

At Ian Donald Optometrist, our professionals use ultra-widefield imaging technology to capture a wide, high-resolution image of your retina and get the full picture of exactly what’s going on with your eye health.
