Retinal Diagnostic Testing in Baton Rouge LA
Comprehensive Retinal Eye Tests
A thorough retina examination requires a dilated eye exam for adequate viewing of the entire retina which is inside the eye similar to wallpaper inside a room. Many times additional diagnostic testing is used to detect microscopic changes in the retina that are unseen with the human eye and for ongoing monitoring of retinal conditions. These tests may include OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography), FA (Fluorescein Angiography), and Fundus Photos. Ultrasonography may be used to visualize the intraocular contents when there is a cloudy media such as hemorrhage, infection, inflammation, or cataract.
