Digital Imagining Systems
With advances in digital imaging technology, we are now able to capture and document any part of the eye. At iSight, we have digital imaging systems for both the front surface (anterior segment) of the eye, and the inside (posterior segment) of the eye. Documentation of any feature of the eye allow us to closely monitor any changes or progression in eye diseases, or any abnormal features of the eye. The pictures will be saved to your file for comparisons in the future.
Anterior segment photography also allows us to fit specialty contact lenses (such as OrthoK lenses, or rigid gas permeable lenses) much more accurately, as we can see document how the lenses behave in the eye in between visits.
As the saying goes, "a picture tells a thousand words".
