seeing is believing

Your eyes are the gateway to your world! Eyes are one of the most important organs in the body, and it only makes sense to take good care of them. Our eyes do more than just “seeing;” they’re a window into our health as well.

vision and eye health

At Seattle Eye, our routine eye exam is an essential part of preventative care and includes a comprehensive assessment of your vision as well as your eye health. Many systemic diseases from diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, and cancer to autoimmune disease and even Alzheimer’s can be detected by a simple examination of the eye.

customized care

Our goal is to provide a comfortable experience and a non-invasive approach that provides an accurate assessment of your vision, and a closer look at your eyes’ blood vessels and nerves to get a better understanding of your metabolic and brain health.

Our Technologies & Procedures

We utilize cutting-edge technologies and procedures to customize the care that best fits your eyes and health.

Optos Ultra-Wide Retinal Imaging and Autofluorescence

Optos Ultra-Wide retinal imaging and fundus autofluorescence are advanced imaging techniques used in our office to assess the health of the eye.

Optos Ultra-wide imaging provides a panoramic view of the retina, allowing for a more comprehensive evaluation of the eye than traditional techniques. It provides a clear image of the peripheral retina, which is important for detecting and monitoring conditions such as retinal tears, detachments, and tumors. The images produced are of high resolution, allowing for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

Fundus autofluorescence imaging is a non-invasive technique that provides information on the metabolic activity of the cells in the retina. It works by measuring the natural fluorescence emitted by the cells when they are excited by a certain wavelength of light. This can reveal changes in the retina caused by conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal dystrophies.

The benefits of these imaging techniques are significant, as they allow for early detection and treatment of many eye conditions, which can improve outcomes and prevent vision loss. They are also painless and quick, making them a convenient and safe diagnostic tool for patients of all ages.

Optical Coherence Tomography

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging technology that uses light waves to capture detailed images of the eye. OCT is revolutionary in its ability to help to diagnose and manage various eye conditions, particularly diseases that affect the retina, such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma.

One of the key benefits of OCT is its ability to provide high-resolution images of the various layers of the retina. This allows us to identify early signs of disease and monitor disease progression over time, which is critical for developing effective treatment plans. Additionally, OCT can also help to detect subtle changes in the eye that may not be visible during a routine eye exam.

OCT is also a non-invasive and painless procedure, which makes it a convenient option for patients. The test is quick and simple, with results available immediately. This means that patients can receive timely treatment, which can help to prevent vision loss or other serious complications.

Overall, Optical Coherence Tomography is a powerful diagnostic tool that has transformed the way eye doctors diagnose and manage various eye conditions. Its ability to provide high-resolution images of the retina and detect early signs of disease has made it an invaluable tool in the fight against blindness and vision loss.

The OCT is available as a part of our advanced screening package.
