Dr. Scott Campbell: This Tech Changes Way Eye Diseases are Identified and Diagnosed
Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/19/2015 -- Local Seattle eyecare clinic, SPEX, introduces the newest innovative technology to be brought into the already technologically advanced practice, the Canon CR6-45NM Digital Retinal Imager. Dr. Scott Campbell, leading doctor at SPEX, comments, "Our practice is based on attention to detail, strong patient relationships, top quality eyewear fashion & lenses, and being on the leading edge of eyecare technology. This is why it is so important for us to add this latest piece to our eyecare offerings, in order to constantly offer the highest standard of patient care."
It is critical to confirm the health of the retina, optic nerve and other retinal structures. The digital camera snaps a high-resolution digital picture of your retina. This picture clearly shows the health of your eyes and is used as a baseline to track any changes in your eyes in future eye examinations. The Canon CR6-45NM Digital Retinal Imager is the latest and greatest in the world of retinal photography, and helps Dr. Campbell more accurately and successfully identify and diagnose common eye conditions. Dr. Campbell adds, "Using the digital retinal imager, we are able to take an image of the inside of a patient's eye and more accurately assess the overall health of the inside of the eye. It also helps diagnose conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, and is helpful in the detection of cancer by looking for signs of cancerous lesions, as well as hemorrhages, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
The Canon Digital Retinal Imager boasts many advantages during an eye exam. No patient prep is required, and scanning is quick, safe, non-invasive and painless, using eye-safe near-infra-red light to eliminate patient discomfort. It is able to provide detailed, extremely high resolution images of your retina and sub-surface of your eyes and instant, direct imaging of the form and structure of eye tissue.
This, and other advanced technologies, make SPEX arguably one of the leading eyecare clinics in the Seattle area. "Having the most advanced technology possible is about more than simply having the 'coolest stuff.' It's about being able to provide our patients with better treatment, earlier and with greater accuracy than anyone has ever been able to provide to them before," says Dr. Campbell.
