Any routine eye exam should always include a careful assessment of the retina to screen for abnormalities or disease. The sensitive tissue that makes up the retina is susceptible to a variety of diseases that can ultimately lead to partial loss of vision or even complete blindness. Early detection of any retinal abnormality is thus crucial. Dr. Reid Robertson and Dr. Hina Robertson strongly recommend getting a digital retinal screening every year. It is painless and only takes a few seconds to capture an image. Call Texas State Optical of Allen today and ask for a screening.
