DIGITAL RETINAL IMAGING INFORMED CONSENT: (You will be asked on appointment form)
Iris Optometric Center now offers a new state-of-the-art diagnostic procedure called Digital Retinal Imaging. This is an extension to the comprehensive eye examination which captures an image of the inside (retina) of your eye using a high- definition digital camera. Digital imaging can aid in the early detection of eye diseases such as DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, MACULAR DEGENERATION, GLAUCOMA, PRE-CANCEROUS LESIONS AND RETINAL HOLES OR BREAKS.
We highly recommend this procedure for all of our patients. While digital imaging is not always a replacement for dilation, it is a comfortable and non-invasive way to document a normal healthy retina at a given time. Some patients may still need to be dilated and photos taken if eye disease is detected.
There is a nominal fee of $39 for this test, which is not covered by routine vision benefits. You may choose whether or not to opt for this test.
DILATED FUNDUS EXAMINATION INFORMED CONSENT
DILATION OF THE PUPIL is a procedure where eye drops are used to enlarge the pupils. This allows the doctor to check for eye diseases and conditions that may result in loss of vision. Your vision for driving and especially reading may become blurry, and your eyes will be sensitive to light for about 3-4 hours. Disposable sunglasses are available upon request.
There is no additional fee for this test.
