Eye Exams & Screenings

Fluorescein Angiography

This diagnostic procedure is performed to examine the blood vessels in the retina. It helps to identify any vessels that are closed or leaking and new abnormal blood vessels. During the procedure, your eyes will be dilated. Dye is injected into a vein in the arm. Photographs are taken as the dye flows through your eyes to reveal any changes to the retinal blood vessels. Fluorescein angiography is typically used to diagnose diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and other conditions.

Fundus Photography

This advanced diagnostic imaging method is typically used in combination with fluorescein angiography. During the procedure, we capture high-resolution images of the retina using a specialized microscope with a camera. These images help Dr. Rosenthal identify retinal detachment and other conditions. Your eyes will be dilated before the procedure.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical Coherence Tomography is a non-invasive imaging test used to check for anatomical changes in the retina and assess any damage to nerves of the eye. OCT can also aid in early detection of certain conditions and diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and optic nerve damage.

During an OCT test, the retina is scanned with an infrared light, forming cross-sectional high-resolution images. Because the images are high-resolution, Dr. Rosenthal is able to quickly and accurately pinpoint the location and extent of any changes in the eyes.
