The retina, together with the macula and the optic nerve, are three structures found in the innermost part of the eye, which is known as the posterior segment or pole. In the practice we have many diagnostic devices capable of analyzing them in depth. But before doing any of these tests we have much faster methods to make a first assessment. These are ophthalmoscopes -both indirect and direct- that allow us to make a quick examination of these structures and discern if they present any obvious problem.
In order to perform the examination more accurately and comfortably by the doctor, the pupil may have to be dilated with a few drops. With this we achieve a much larger "window" through which to observe the entire anterior pole more precisely. In addition, it is a test that can be performed at any age, from children and adolescents to the elderly.
We will be delighted to meet you. Choose day and time.
