In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Dr. Baker is proud to announce the inclusion of the digital widefield retinal imaging as an integral part of your eye exam.  This has been a tremendous resource and Dr. Baker now views it as a necessity for thorough care.  

Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on, you might not notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can often be detected with a thorough exam of the retina. The retina is the part of your eye that catches the image of what you are looking at, similar to the film in a camera.

Digital widefield retinal imaging provides: 

  • A scan to confirm a healthy eye or detect the presence of disease.
  • An overview or map of the retina, giving your eye doctor a more complete view than he can achieve by other means.
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss the retinal images of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
  • A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your doctor to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
