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.
Sight threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and others often have no outward signs or symptoms, which is why eye exams, including a thorough retinal evaluation, are important to protect vision. In an effort to provide a more thorough eye exam, our practice has incorporated the iWellnessExam™ SD- OCT retinal scan as part of our comprehensive eye exams.
Like an MRI of the eye, but totally painless and taking only seconds to perform, the iWellnessExam™ provides high definition cross-sections of your retina which can reveal ocular anatomy and signs of disease in exquisite and stunning detail.
The iWellnessExam™ technology allows our doctors to see with unprecedented clarity what is invisible with traditional examination methods.
Any questions you have about these tests can be discussed during your examination with any of our Eye Q Optometrists.
