  • Visual acuity
  • Eye tracking
  • Eye coordination

Retinal Imaging is also recommended as part of your annual eye examination to assist the doctor in documenting and detecting early changes in ocular health.  Earlier detection means more treatment options and better outcomes.  Most insurance plans cover retinal imaging or photography with a small copay. 

"A picture is worth a thousand words." -- Dr. Fose
