As a part of its endeavor to ensure that patients get access to the most advanced treatment, Prabhudesai Eye Clinic has now installed innovative technology at it’s clinic to perform retinal evaluation without dilatation.

Over the years we have always adopted to latest technologies diagnosis and management of complex eye diseases, offering state-of the-art infrastructure, surgical facilities, while at the same time providing routine eye care.

Dr Prabhudesai informed that the latest technology to perform retinal evaluation without dilatation which has been installed at the clinic is in the form of a Laser based imaging system which scans almost the entire Retina in a few minutes and can do this with normal pupils. It works with the help of high end medical grade lasers which scans the Retina hence no camera with flash light is required.

The technology is extremely safe, convenient and comfortable and can be performed in a matter of seconds. The scans can also be used for comparison later. This technology will save the pre examination and actual examination time for individuals who opt it. It is especially useful for people who are allergic to dilatation drops, intolerant to light & children.

What is Eye Dilation ?

Pupil dilation is performed to purposefully increase the size of the pupils during an eye exam so that the eye doctor can fully examine the health of the optic nerve and retina. The exam is critical to preventing and treating eye conditions that could potentially lead to vision loss. Eye dilation assists your doctor in diagnosing common diseases and conditions, possibly at their earliest stages.

They include Diabetes, High blood pressure, Macular degeneration, Retinal detachment and Glaucoma. Eye dilation also makes your vision blurry and your eyes more light sensitive, which, for a few hours, can affect your ability to drive or work. Eye dilation can be sometimes greatly inconvenient .Whether eye dilation during an exam is necessary depends on the reason for your exam, your age, your overall health and your risk of eye diseases.
