At Specsavers, Digital Retinal Photography is free with every standard eye exam.

Digital Retinal Photography technology allows Specsavers Highpoint Optometrist Director Naim Bashir to screen for abnormalities which can help with the early detection of diseases including glaucoma, macular degeneration and retinal changes that may be associated with diabetes.

Digital Retinal Photography uses sophisticated equipment to produce a high-resolution photograph of your retina, optic nerve and blood vessels. Any detected abnormalities can then be monitored and treated to better protect the quality of your sight and overall eye health. These images are stored by our optometrists to track your eye health over time. This means photos can be compared to help identify subtle changes in the eyes that could indicate serious eyes diseases.

Naim says “I am so pleased that we offer our customers access to the best eye care possible with the latest cutting edge technology. I believe all our customers deserve access to such fantastic and advanced technology without having to pay extra for it.

Regardless of whether or not you wear glasses, Specsavers optometrists recommend that everyone, including children, have an eye test every two years.
