CANON EYE-Q LITE is our leading-edge retinal imaging technology. It dramatically enhances our capability to help you and your family, and care for your vision. The CANON EYE-Q LITE enables us to make an early diagnosis of many abnormal vision conditions. Some of these can result in permanent vision loss if not caught and treated in a timely manner.
CANNON EYE Q-LITE imaging combines the science of retinal photography with recent advances in software and imaging technology. Together they produce remarkably clear retinal images. That makes it possible for us to establish baseline images of the inside of your eyes. Then, we can compare this image with future images and carefully observe any normal or abnormal changes.
It helps us keep an accurate record of your visual health over time. Plus, an annual retinal imaging procedure is beneficial to patients who are at risk or developing eye disease. This includes individuals suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, those at risk of age-related macular degeneration, also anyone with a family history of glaucoma. Of course, individuals who already show some type of retinal abnormality, retinal imaging is medically necessary and will be performed at intervals deemed appropriate by the doctor:
Your eyesight is priceless, and we are here to protect it! Vision-threatening diseases often have no outward signs or symptoms in the early stages, so our practice has began using state-of-the-art technology to assess the health of your eyes.
The Wellness Exam is a quick, non-invasive scan that allows doctors to see beneath the surface of your retina. This unique technology can help our doctors detect vision-threatening diseases in their early stages, when they are most treatable.
