Red Atlas is a website that was used extensively during the course of all of our physician’s optometric training while in their respective optometry schools. We have found, however, that is serves as a great resource for our patients to see actual photos as our physicians would see them in the office of various ocular conditions. Most of our patients will want to focus on the Anterior Segment Tab for conditions near the front of the eye, the Glaucoma tab if they have been diagnosed with glaucoma or as a glaucoma suspect, or the Retina tab for conditions noted in the back of the eyes.
