Macular testing is an important part of modern eye examination, and it is especially important after the age of 40!
So, in addition to our normal comprehensive vision examination, we also offer brand new, state-of-the-art retinal imaging and macular testing!
The facts about eye disease are clear: the sooner eye health and vision problems are discovered, the sooner you can be helped. Here at Eye CU, you can, not only have a comprehensive vision test, but you can also know that the very latest in macular testing provides early intervention for macular degeneration!
The Visucam 200 is the first instrument of its kind in the world to actually test, record and measure the density of pigment cells in the macula, the central region of the eye where you examine detail. Macular degeneration causes a loss of vision in the exact area where you read, recognize faces and watch TV, and it is arguably the most debilitating of all eye conditions.
Imagine looking at TV only to have it disappear. Imagine looking into a friend’s face, only to have it blur out. That’s what macular degeneration can do, and that is why we have obtained this amazing early warning macular testing instrument.
At present this is the only instrument of its type on the Coast, and offers the earliest warning macular testing available in the world!
