WHY DO I HAVE TO GET MY EYES DILATED???

WHY DO I HAVE TO GET MY EYES DILATED????

This is a question we hear all too often. The answer is simple...it can save your vision and even your life. A dilated fundus exam(DFE) is critical in preventing and treating eye conditions that can lead to vision loss. Dilating a patient and taking retinal pictures gives Dr. Penney a better view of the back of the eye. This view allows him to gather important information from the optic nerves and retina that help detect and treat diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, melanoma, damage from diabetes, retinal tears and detachments, ocular tumors, etc. It is vital for your eye health to get regular, dilated exams. Here at the office of Dr. Michael Penney, the DFE and retinal pictures are included in your comprehensive exam at no charge to you.
