Examining the retina is necessary to detect a whole range of retinal diseases. Aside from macular degeneration, these also include retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy, among others. The retinal tomographic screening uses a unique technology to generate digital recordings of the ocular fundus within seconds. That makes it possible to evaluate the state of your retina comprehensively.
This exam is totally painless and risk-free for you as the patient. It can also often be done without special preparation, such as a pupil dilation.
