What condition does retinal imaging help with diagnosing?
Glaucoma is a progressive damage of the optical nerve that is often referred to as the “silent thief of sight” because it usually develops without symptoms. Unfortunately optic nerve damages are irreversible, but with the aid of retinal imaging technology proper monitoring combined with functional testing and early intervention is essential in managing glaucoma and protecting eyesight.
