What is a RetinaVue Diabetic Eye Exam?RetinaVue Diabetic Eye Exam from Crouse Medical Practice in Syracuse NY

RetinaVue is a digital camera that is specifically designed to take high-resolution images of the patient’s eye and retina. The images then enable a retinal specialist to provide a diagnosis.

With the RetinaVue diabetic eye exam, a retinal specialist can quickly determine if a patient with diabetes:

  • Has healthy vision. In this case, a second, follow-up RetinaVue exam is scheduled one year later.
  • Needs a follow up appointment with a specialist
  • Requires treatment as soon as possible

The RetinaVue Exam

Just 5 Minutes of Your Time

The RetinaVue diabetic eye exam is fast, easy and straightforward, taking about 5 minutes to start and finish the test.

No Eye Dilation Necessary

The RetinaVue diabetic eye exam does not require a patient's eyes to be dilated for the test. This makes the test convenient, as there's no need to wait to drive home or deal with the hassle of arranging a ride after your appointment.

Covered by Most Insurance Policies

This makes the RetinaVue diabetic eye exam affordable, on top of the potential savings from preventing vision problems before they need to be treated.


The quick and easy RetinaVue diabetic eye exam can be done at the same time as your primary care doctor's appointment or meeting with our diabetes specialists.

Fast Diagnosis

The RetinaVue diabetic eye exam delivers results within an hour after the test is complete.

Results and Follow up

These results are then delivered to our specialists in the form of a report. This report includes recommendations for the next steps to prevent or treat any eye problems that were detected. Crouse Medical Practice will then contact you to let you know the results and to schedule any follow up appointments, if necessary.
