Your retina is critical to your ability to see.

It stretches across the backside of your eye’s interior and collects data from your environment. This data is turned into visuals by millions of nerve cells and light-sensitive cells within the retina. This data is sent through the optic nerve to the brain, where it is translated into your visual interpretation of the world. If the retina can’t do its job properly, your vision is severely impacted.

There are a variety of retinal diseases that can destroy your eyesight, and advanced technology is making it easier to diagnose disease early on. We want to ensure that you receive exceptional eyecare at My Clear Eyes, so we’ve invested in an advanced Optos retinal imaging system. This equipment allows us to take specialized images of your retina, which makes it easier to diagnose the early signs of retinal disease.

Signs of Retinal Disease

If your retina’s health is compromised and it stops functioning properly, you may notice one or more of the following signs of retinal disease:

• Seeing spots in your field of vision
• Seeing cobwebs floating in your field of vision
• Blurred vision
• Distorted vision
• Lost vision
Symptoms of retinal disease may start out subtle, so it’s important to call My Clear Eyes as soon as you notice any changes in your vision.

Why Do You Need Optos Retinal Imaging?

Optos is a retinal camera that allows the doctor to take a digital image of the back of your eye (which includes the retina, blood vessels, and optic nerve) without having to dilate your eyes. The image is very detailed and goes out to 200 degrees versus 40 degrees when viewed through a non-dilated pupil.

Even if you don’t have any of the symptoms of retinal disease listed above, you should consider Optos imaging if you have any of the following risk factors:
• Eye pain
• Migraines
• High blood pressure
• Changes in vision
• Eye injury or trauma
• Family history of retinal disease
• Diabetes
There are other medical conditions that may increase your risk of retinal disease. Your eye doctor will inform you if your risk for disease is high, allowing you to take advantage of Optos imagery for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Types of Retinal Disease

• Retinal Tear – A small break in the retina’s tissue is often caused by shrinkage in the center of the eye.
• Retinal Detachment – Fluid makes its way beneath the retina, often from a retinal tear.
• Diabetic Retinopathy – Swelling in the retina due to deterioration of nearby capillaries, which is caused by diabetes.
• Epiretinal Membrane – The epiretinal membrane can roll up on the retina, interfering with vision.
• Macular Hole – A small hole in the center of the retina is often the result of eye trauma.
• Macular Degeneration – The center of the retina begins to deteriorate with age.
• Retinitis Pigmentosa – This rare degenerative disease is often inherited, so routine screening is advised for anyone with a family history.

The earlier we catch problems with the retina, the more likely we are to save your vision with less invasive treatments. If you have noticed any changes in your vision or have any retinal disease warning signs, contact Dr. Rahman at My Clear Eyes immediately.

We offer Optos exams for just $29, with walk-ins and same-day appointments available.
