Q&A with Dr. Law

Dr. Law Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Why should I take an image of my retina during my eye exam?

A picture can say a 1000 words, and this saying holds true with the eye. There are many components of the eye, but one of the most important parts of the eye is the retina,which is located in the back of the eye behind the pupil and lens inside. The retina is responsible for converting light energy into chemical signals that are then transferred via the optic nerve to the brain, where that information is processed, resulting in our vision. There are no pain receptors within the retina, and so you will never feel any issues in the retina that maybe life threatening, such as melanomas, and sight threatening, such as glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy. Changes within the retina can cause vision loss, therefore it is important for us to get imaging in the back of the eye so that we can check for any retinal disease, such as Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma, and so that we can establish a normal baseline so that we can monitor any changes more accurately. Dilations are also necessary for us to evaluate the back of the eye as well as imaging to ensure we have a complete overall sense of the eye.

March 7,2015 Leslie G. New York, N.Y.

Everyone was very patient and helpful. I had some insurance mixup and the assistants helped me sort it through very quickly. And Dr Schlussel was great! Would highly recommend.

February 28,2015  Joseph M. Union City, NJ

Dr. Law was very professional and very accomplished. I felt as if I was in good hands from the start. The exam was brisk but not rushed, and I felt confident in her conclusions. I'm sorry that I spent so many years going to an optometrist who made me wait forever to get in and then rushed through my exam. Special mention should also be made of the office staff, who were kind and helpful.
