Opthalmic imaging has played an important role as an addition to a patients ophthalmic examination. Imaging has become a critical component of a comprehensive exam due to new technology and treatment options. Fundus photography, optical coherence tomography and fundus autofluorescence results are commonly used as a basis for treatment plans in glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. Opthalmic personnel with imaging skills are increasingly in demand and learning these skills can expand your role as a valued member of any eye care team. In addition to the useful and technical aspects of imaging, good assessment and communication skills can also lead to better image quality. Blinking, focusing and overexposure all can be factors in obtaining clear and accurate photos. Learning to judge the images on the capture monitor can help discover any artifacts or problems. Good communication with the ordering optometrist or ophthalmologist is important to ensure you capture the correct pathology or area of interest with the right tool or technique. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about what you see in images and how the doctor uses them to make diagnostic decisions. Visit one of our 8 locations including Fort Myers, Naples, and Cape Coral.
