Sight threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and others often have no outward signs or symptoms, which is why eye exams, including a thorough retinal evaluation, are important to protect vision. In an effort to provide a more thorough eye exam, our practice has incorporated the iWellnessExam™ SD- OCT retinal scan as part of our comprehensive eye exams.
Like an MRI of the eye, but totally painless and taking only seconds to perform, the iWellnessExam™ provides high definition cross sections of your retina which can reveal ocular anatomy and sings of disease in exquisite and stunning detail.
The iWellnessExam™ technology allows Dr. Short to see with unprecedented clarity what is invisible with traditional examination methods.
The $35 cost is typically not covered by your medical or vision insurance unless being used to actively follow disease. This cost will be added into the price of your visit.
Any questions you have about these tests can be discussed during your examination with Dr. Short.
* The iWellnessExam is an eligible expense for Flexible Spending Accounts
