Q&A with Dr. S

Dr. Schlussel Answers Your Eyecare Questions

My friend went to his eye doctor and was told,after reviewing the picture taken of his retina, that he probably has diabetes and hypertension. How can an eye doctor determine this from an eye exam?

The eye is the only structure of the body whereby we can examine the blood vessels in detail without cutting away tissue or using invasive testing. A retinal photograph allows your eye doctor to evaluate the health of your body- in this case, your friend's doctor may have seen bleeding in the retina and some changes in the blood vessels that indicated a long term problem with diabetes or hypertension.These conditions require immediate treatment by an internist and additional evaluation and treatment by a retinal specialist. Many of our colleagues offer an Optomap photograph to our patients during their routine eye exam in order to detect potential problems like this that can have life- threatening consequences.
