The iWellnessExam® is a state-of-the-art technology that lets Dr. Cerrone see beneath the surface of your retina. This provides a level of detail that a traditional eye exams can not offer. This painless, non-invasive scan takes just a couple of seconds to complete. Like an MRI of the eye, it shows layers of your retina where early stages of eye disease appear.
Eye diseases that can threaten your vision often have no outward signs or symptoms in the early stages. Regular iWellness Exams can help Dr. Cerrone detect these common eye diseases for early detection and treatment:
• Diabetic Retinopathy— damage to the blood vessels in the retina caused by complications from diabetes.
• Glaucoma— a disease in which the nerve fibers are damaged causing permanent vision loss and progressing to blindness if untreated.
• Macular Degeneration– damage to the center of the retina causing difficulty seeing fine details.
