Diagnostic Eye Tests Q & A

What diagnostic eye tests are available?

To provide the most accurate results, the team at Network Eye offers a variety of advanced diagnostic eye tests in-office. You can get the results you need without having to travel elsewhere, so you can begin necessary treatments to protect your eye health.

Photography

Ophthalmic photography is a specialized form of medical imaging that provides information about the health and function of structures in your eye. The team uses advanced photography technology to diagnose and treat a variety of eye diseases that affect the retina, cornea, and iris.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT)

OCT is a noninvasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section images of your retina. This technology makes it possible for the team to view the distinctive layers of your retina so that they can evaluate the thickness of each.

Fluorescein angiography

Fluorescein angiography uses a special dye and a camera to evaluate the blood flow to your retina and choroid at the back of your eye.

Why would I need diagnostic eye tests?

You may need routine eye tests as part of your annual exam or specialized evaluations like diabetes eye tests. The Network Eye team may also recommend diagnostic eye tests if you have unexplained symptoms like:

  • Eye pain
  • Floaters
  • Blurry vision
  • Vision loss
  • Flashes of light
  • Increased light sensitivity

Based on the results of your diagnostic eye tests, the team can determine if you need additional tests to confirm your diagnosis. They can also discuss your options for treating your symptoms and protecting you from vision loss.

What are the benefits of diagnostic eye tests?

The goal of diagnostic eye tests is to identify underlying eye disease and other complications that can affect your vision and overall eye health in the earliest stages.

These tests are important because not all eye diseases cause symptoms immediately. Many won’t show symptoms until the damage is already done and your risk for vision loss is significant.

The diagnostic eye tests available at Network Eye also help the team create your treatment plan to protect your eye health and preserve your long-term vision.

What can I expect after diagnostic eye tests?

Your vision may be blurry for several hours because of dilation. You will need someone to drive you home and should wear dark glasses to protect your eyes from the sun.
