Your eyesight is priceless, and we are here to protect it!
Vision-threatening diseases often have no outward signs or symptoms in the early stages, so Vision Thru Design has begun using state-of-the-art technology to assess the health of your eyes.
The Wellness Scan
The Wellness Exam is a quick, non-invasive scan that allows Dr. Angela F. Costa, O.D. to see beneath the surface of your retina. This unique technology can help detect vision-threatening diseases in their early stages, when they are most treatable. The Wellness Exam is an additional $45 charge that is typically not covered by vision plans or medical insurance. Any questions you have about Wellness Exam and the results of the test can be discussed with the doctor during your examination.
The OCT Optic Nerve Head Scan
Glaucoma is a disease in which the nerve fibers suffer damage, permanently impacting vision in the affected eye or eyes and progressing to blindness if not treated. It usually develops without obvious symptoms and is called the “sneak thief of sight.” There are 2.29 million American adults with glaucoma, yet 2 million more are estimated to have the disease and do not know it. Because glaucoma often has no outward signs or symptoms in the early stages, tests like the OCT Optic Nerve Head Scan can prove to be crucial in preventing vision loss by detecting the disease very early on.
This potentially vision-saving scan is typically covered by medical insurance plans. Please ask any of our staff if you have questions about your insurance coverage.
The OCT Retina Scan
Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is damage to the blood vessels in the retina caused by complications of diabetes. A recent CDC study reported that diabetic retinopathy affects approximately 1/3 of the diabetic population. The eye disease, if not detected and treated, can severely affect vision. The OCT Retina Scan can detect damage from diabetic retinopathy, as well as find other retinal issues early on in their development.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD or ARMD) is an eye disorder that damages the center of the retina (macula), making it difficult to see fine details. It is caused by damage to the area around blood vessels that supply the macula and is a leading cause of vision loss for Americans age 55 and older. The OCT Retina scan lets your doctor see beneath the surface of your retina, where signs of disease first appear. Traditional eye exams and retinal photography do not provide this level of detail.
This scan is typically covered by medical insurance plans. Please ask any of our staff if you have questions about your insurance coverage.
