Dr. Hitan Prajapati Says Zeiss Visucam Pro Adds Exciting Possibilities For Patient Care
Morrisville, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/12/2015 -- Dr. Hitan Prajapati and Triangle Family Eye Care introduce the addition of the exciting new Zeiss Visucam Pro to the practice's eye exams. The Zeiss Visucam Pro is a revolutionary device in the field of retinal imaging technology that allows your eye doctor to take high resolution photographs of the retina, including the optic nerve, retinal blood vessels, vitreous cavity, macula and peripheral retina, in order to help diagnose eye and vision diseases associated with the retina and the human body overall. It can help detect a number of common and sometimes dangerous eye conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal tumors.
"Zeiss has always been known in the industry for their superb optics, and the Visucam Pro is no exception," comments Dr. Prajapati. "The superior picture quality of the Visucam Pro and the ease with which we are able to quickly identify a problem were major reasons why we chose this particular device to help our patients." With this new technology, Dr. Prajapati is able to take a detailed retinal photo which, along with having the eye dilated, noticeably increases what he is able to see when examining a patient's eyes during a routine eye exam. It also allows Dr. Prajapati to compare new photos of a patient's eyes to images of the patient's eye from previous years, in order to more easily track changes that may signal a possible problem.
About Triangle Family Eye Care
The eye care team at Triangle Family Eye Care recommends that the Zeiss Visucam Pro be a part of all comprehensive eye exams. However, it is especially important for those with diabetes, uncontrolled high blood pressure, risk of glaucoma or macular degeneration, as well as those who suffer sudden vision loss or headaches related to vision.
When asked to share a story illustrating the impact of the Zeiss Visucam Pro on an individual patient, Dr. Prajapati relates:
"I saw a patient that wanted to get their glasses updated, for a routine eye exam. Upon dilating his eyes I noticed a small, bright speck in the retinal blood vessel. I took a retinal photo and was able to show him the cholesterol plaque in the retinal arteriole. Luckily he did not have any vision or visual field loss related to the plaque but I immediately got him back to his primary care physician for blood workup and scans. The test results showed the patient had carotid stenosis in one of his carotid arteries and he was immediately put on blood thinners and properly managed thereafter. By the patient coming in for his routine eye exam we were able to prevent him from having a stroke, heart attack, or even death."
