Any routine eye exam should always include a careful look at the retina, which is located at the back of the eye, to screen for abnormalities or disease. The tissue that makes up the retinal is susceptible to to diseases that can ultimately lead to partial loss of vision or even complete blindness. Early detection on any retinal abnormality is crucial. Previously, this screening was done by dilating the pupils, a procedure that many patients found uncomfortable, inconvenient and time-consuming.
