Is Your Diabetes Being Managed Correctly?

The diopsys test creates reports that your general care doctor can look at to see patterns that measure brain activity to detect cell damage or loss in the eye using the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) test at the optometrist’s office.

This test is able to quantify cell sickness and cell loss after the cells are dead. This is information beneficial to the GP who manages diabetic patients.

At our eye care center near Salt Lake City, we see patients who have complicated issues diabetes or glaucoma. Often times, there are more patients out there who do not have regular eye exams, and do not know the importance of a comprehensive exam.

As General Practitioners, we have the ability to help patients get the best possible care. Testing is available for more exact results that can show issues with the retinal cells at the back of the eye long before any symptoms appear. That is where the Diopsys Electroretinography enters the equation.

Diopsys, The Gold Standard For Diabetic Eye Care

The diopsys Retinal Scan done by our Salt Lake City Optometrist during your Diabetic eye exam creates a detailed report that your eye doctor can look at to see patterns that measure brain activity to detect cell damage before irreversible damage occurs. Unlike previous technology which only shows what cells in your retina have already died, the Diopsys shows unhealthy cells which allows your general care doctor to be more aggressive in treatment and prevent irreversible vision loss.

What is Diopsys Electroretinography?

The Diopsys is designed to measure the cells in the retina
  • Noninvasively
  • Objectively
  • In-depth
  • Functionally.

The goal is to find problems early

The Diopsys allow to enable the patient to have the best vision possible. An OTC scan is effective, but the Diopsys Electroretinography takes it a step further, and is able to detect issues long before any physical symptoms are manifested.
