Recently, we purchased a Fundus Camera for our Bloomington Doctor Tavel Family Eye Care.  Without going into a technical discussion of exactly what a Fundus Camera does, it essentially takes a photo of the back of the eye.  The highly specialized image documents a baseline image that can be used for comparison over time.  As we age and our bodies change, so do our eyes, which is why it is great to have a standard to compare by and see any changes over time.  In addition to setting a standard, this screening can be used to diagnose potential eye diseases.

While the economy is down, it might not make sense to most companies to make capital equipment purchases.  For Doctor Tavel, we feel that a Fundus Photo screen is an excellent compliment to a comprehensive eye examination.  We strive to be the best eye doctors in the state of Indiana and in order to accomplish this, we must have the right tools to do the job.
