Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of newly diagnosed blindness in the United States. The damage to the retina caused by diabetes can often be prevented with regular eye examinations. We utilize the latest medical technology to identify and manage the potential vision threats caused by diabetes.
A careful dilated retinal examination has been the best way to screen for early diabetic changes in the eye, THAT IS UNTIL NOW.
The doctors at Family Eyecare of Glendale are proud to introduce CLARUS ULTA-WIDE FIELD RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY to our patients as part of our routine yearly diabetic care regimen. When this technology is combined with a careful dilated retina examination and when necessary, advanced deep retinal laser scans using OCT technology, PATIENTS ARE AFFORDED THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF DIABETIC EYE CARE.
We strongly believe that this technology will give our doctors a potent new tool in the war against diabetic eye disease and improve the overall quality of care we offer our patients by finding subtle EARLY changes of diabetic eye disease which might have otherwise been overlooked.
