Welcome to AFM Healthcare, formerly Alilin Family Medicine. We have a different name, but the same great quality care you count on.
Retinal imaging, or what we use our RetinaVue technology for, takes a digital picture of the back of your eye. It shows your primary physician the retina of your eyes as well as your optic disk and your blood vessels. This imaging can help your doctor diagnose very serious illnesses that could get far worse if left untreated and could lead to the potential loss of your sight.
Diseases like diabetes, macular degeneration and glaucoma can all be diagnosed in this fashion and, thus, we could begin prescribing treatments for these ailments. In some cases, we may have to refer you to a specialist, depending on how the disease is progressing. However, we believe that making these tests easily available to you is valuable in that it could save you from having a disease like this remain undiagnosed for some time.
At AFM, we’re always looking to increase the value we offer to our customers. So, you can look forward to taking advantage of these technological improvements and services as a patient at any of our offices including our Oviedo location.
