For the amazing amount of work our eyes do, they take a beating from environmental elements and daily strain. Though it’s difficult to prevent this assault, it’s extremely important to see your family eye doctor for routine eye exams to maintain the health of your eyes.
Georgia licensed optometrist, Dr. Marc Lay regularly sees patients for conditions such as allergies and dry eye that can cause interruption to your daily routine if left untreated. Additionally, board certified ophthalmologist Dr. William Segal’s continued education with the latest vision correction methods allows him to diagnose and treat common, but complex conditions such as eye-related migraines and glaucoma.
As part of our commitment to maintaining your vision and maximizing your overall eye health, it may be necessary for Dr. Segal, or one of his associates at Georgia Eye Physicians and Surgeons, to take fundus photos. These digital images are painlessly captured using specialized photographic equipment to see the inside of the eye including the retina, vitreous, choroid, and optic nerve. Fundus photos may also be used to detect abnormalities on the surface or inside the eyes.
While disorders of the fundus can typically be diagnosed after examination through the pupil by Dr. Segal or Dr. Lay using and ophthalmoscope, fundus photos can help to provide a baseline for monitoring and managing the progression of diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.
Depending on the presence of certain eye conditions and the reason for your visit, Dr. Segal may request external eye photographs to be taken for your medical records. Using a quick shot taken with a high-resolution digital camera, Dr. Segal will direct his team to document any eye lesions or structural abnormalities of the eye area requiring treatment. Dr. Segal and other members of your Georgia Eye Physicians and Surgeons care team may also use external ophthalmic photos to gauge the progression of skin conditions affecting the eye area such as eyelid lesions, rosacea or blepharitis as part of a comprehensive eye exam. If you’re having a cosmetic eye procedure performed at our practice such as blepharoplasty (eye lid surgery) you can expect Dr. Segal to take external photos of your eyes during your pre-operative visit and post-operative result photos for your records.
