At Chapel Hill Eyecare we provide comprehensive eye care to people of all ages. Our concern is not only your eyeglass or contact lens prescription, but your eye health as well.
Why We Dilate / OPTOS Retinal Imaging
We require all of our patients to either have their eyes dilated or have OPTOS Retinal Imaging at their annual exam. Dilating the eyes / OPTOS Retinal Imaging allows the doctor to thoroughlyexamine the internal structures of the eye, aiding in the detection of conditions like macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and cataracts. The eyes are the only part of the body where we can see internally (blood vessels, etc) without having to cut it open. Therefore, the eyes can also show signs of high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, diabetes, and many other systemic diseases.
