The diopsys Retinal Scan done by our 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.
