We’ll check every aspect of your eye health, even the parts that can’t be seen

When you visit the Optician you want to know that your eye health has been thoroughly examined, with no aspect of your vision missed. At Scher & Lasky Opticians we can check even the parts of your eye that can’t be seen externally. This is done by photographing your retina.

The retina is the layer of cells at the back of the eye where incoming images are focused. Damage to the retina can result in problems with your vision, and serious damage can even cause blindness. Taking regular pictures of your retina means we can monitor and detect any changes before they develop into serious problems.

At Scher & Lasky Opticians we have retinal imaging technology that allows us to view up to 400% more of the back of your eye than could be seen manually. That’s why we strongly recommend that you have regular retinal photos taken, so that we can make sure nothing is missed when we assess your eyes.

The photography process itself is quick and painless, so nothing to worry about. Once the image has been taken, your Optometrists will use it to assess the layers of your retina and check for any lesions or areas of concern.

Your retinal images will be kept on file so that they can be compared against new ones on future visits. With this information we can monitor the health of the inside of your eye, and provide guidance and referral, if needed, to help prevent potential problems.
