It is very important that people get routine eye care. Many individuals underestimate just how vital eye exams can really be and may not realize whether they are at risk for any particular conditions or whether they even have any as a result. There are many different aspects to a person’s eye health as well, and retinal health happens to be one of them. Here at The Retina Group of Washington we can help provide a wide variety of options when it comes to routine Bowie eye testing that looks at the various aspects of your eye health, especially the retina,
We provide a many different tests here at our retinal facilities. We can help people who may be at risk for retinal diseases and conditions as well as people who may already have issues. The retina is the light sensitive tissue located at the back of the eye. As light is refracted by your cornea, or lens, it passes through the pupil in a certain way to the retina located at the very back of the eye. This tissue then translates this light data into images that your brain can perceive and understand as images. As you can see, the retina is integral to overall eye and vision health, and having a retinal condition can put your vision at risk. Here at The Retina Group of Washington our retinal specialists can provide you with any Bowie eye testing that you need. Some of the tests we perform here include digital fundus (retinal) photography, fluorescein angiography, digital high-speed indocyanine green (ICG) angiography, optical coherence tomography (OCT), B-scan ultrasonography and much more.
