Is there a Benefit to Getting High-Resolution Images Of My Eyes?

Question: My eye doctor offers a service that allows me to get high-resolution images of my eyes, but it is not covered by insurance. Is there any benefit to getting these images?

Answer: High-resolution images can be of enormous benefit in terms of treatment and following of various eye diseases. Usually these are covered by various forms of insurance, if there is a medical indication for it. Exploratory images are usually not covered, but may be of benefit in situations where a person has a family history of a disease, in which case, these images may be helpful in detecting early signs.
