Annual eye exams are vital to maintain your vision and overall health. We offer routine FDT Perimetry as an important part of our eye exams. The FDT Perimeter measures retinal sensitivity which indicates retinal and optic nerve health. The retina is the part of your eye that captures the image of wheat you are looking at, similar to the film in a camera. The optic nerve transmits this information to the brain.
Many eye problems can develop with you knowing. You may not notice any change in your eyesight. Diseases such as Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Retinal Tears and Detachments and other health problems such as Diabetes and High Blood Pressure can be diagnosed using this instrument.
FDT Perimetry provides:
- A scan to show a healthy eye or detect eye disease providing Dr. Nolt with more detailed information than he can get by other means.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss FDT results at the time of your eye exam and recommend the appropriate follow up examination.
