FDT – Frequency Doubling Technology
We are pleased to offer a new technology in diagnosing possible diseases of the eye that a routine evaluation cannot detect. Frequency Doubling Technology is an exciting new way of testing visual fields (peripheral or side vision) of the eye. Diseases such as certain vascular and/or medication disturbances of the eye can very often be detected in early stages by this technology.
It is strongly recommended that all of our patients over 30 years of age receive this evaluation, and it is especially important for those patients who have a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, migraines, persistent headache, floaters, high prescription, or retinal problems. Additionally, if there is a family history of glaucoma, it is important to have this test periodically.
This state of the art procedure is painless, easy to administer, and takes only a few minutes of time.
If not covered by your insurance, there is an additional fee for this service.
