Why do I need my retinas scanned?
First of all, the retina is the nerve tissue of the eye, a problem with this is incredibly serious and need to be adressed. The sooner a problem is found, the better the prognosis and possibly a cure. The problem is the part or the retina is invisable to the eye and only the structures like blood vessels are visible. The scans alow the invisible to be visible and measure and count the amount of nerve tissue present and compare it to other normal patients to determined if there is disease present. Detection of these disease can be done years before patients can detect the damage in their vision.
