EYE NEWS...WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW


ABOUT THE ZEISS STRATUS OCT RETINAL IMAGER

WHAT IS IT?
The Gold Standard of Care for identifying retinal and glaucoma
disease characteristics and for monitoring disease progression.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
The Zeiss Stratus OCT Retinal Imager allows Dr. Seymour to visualize and analyze retinal disorders
and detect glaucoma at their earliest stages, before vision damage occurs. Here's how:

The retina is the innermost lining of the inside of your eye.
It is composed of several individual layers and functions like the film in a camera.
The lens of your eye focuses images on the retina, much like the lens of a camera focuses images on film.
The optic nerve transmits the images to the brain, enabling you to see.
Like other organs in your body, the retina is subject to changes that can lead
to visual impairment, depending on what area of the retina is affected .
Retinal disease, such as diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration
and glaucoma are prevalent causes of blindness.
The real danger lies in how most eye diseases progress very slowly and symptoms do not appear until
it is too late for any treatment to be effective.
Early detection of these diseases is therefore crucial.
The Zeiss Stratus OCT allows Dr. Seymour to closely monitor
and address structural changes in the retina before your vision is affected.
