DID YOU KNOW?
• Sight-threatening eye diseases often have no outward signs or symptoms in the early stages.
• State-of-the-art technology can help your doctor see early signs of these diseases.
• Early detection and treatment of eye diseases may reduce your risk of vision loss.
The iWellness Exam® is state-of-the-art technology that lets your doctor see beneath the surface of your retina, where signs of disease first appear. Traditional eye exams and retinal photography do not provide this level of detail.
Regular iWellness Exams® can help the doctor detect various common eye diseases such as:
• Diabetic Retinopathy
• Macular Degeneration
The iWellness Exam® is non-invasive and doesn't use bright light or require pupil dialation. The procedure takes just seconds to complete, and best of all, it is very low cost.
To learn about this remarkable new eye exam technology, please watch the video below and discover what it means to you.
Diabetic Retinopathy is damage to the blood vessels in the retina caused by complications of diabetes. A recent CDC study reported that diabetic retinopathy affects approximately 1/3 of the diabetic population. The eye disease, if not detected and treated, can severely affect vision.
Glaucoma is a disease in which the nerve fibers suffer damage permanently impacting vision in the affected eye(s) and progressing to blindness if untreated. It usually develops without obvious symptoms and is called the "sneak thief of sight." There are 2.29 million American adults with glaucoma, yet 2 million more are estimated to have the disease and do not know it.
Macular Degeneration is an eye disorder that damages the center of the retina (macula), making it difficult to see fine details. It is caused by damage to the area around blood vessels that supply the macula and is a leading cause of vision loss for Americans age 55 and older.
