Protect Your Vision
We recommend that our patients include an optomap® as part of your comprehensive eye exam. The optomap® ultra-widefield digital retinal imaging device helps you and your eye doctor make informed decisions about your eye-health and overall well-being. Combining your eye doctor's expertise and optomap® technology, optomap® brings your eye exam to life.
Examining the retina is challenging. Your eye doctor looks through your pupil to examine the back of your eye. Traditional viewing methods can be effective, but difficult to perform and are carried out manually without any digital record.
Your retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. this means , in addition to ye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes) can be seen in the retina. An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals to your brain which can result in impaired vision or blindness.
The unique optomap® ultra-widefield view enhances your eye doctor's ability to detect even the earliest sign of disease that appears on your retina. Seeing most of the retina at once allows your eye doctor more time to review your images and educate you about your eye health. Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the power of optomap® as a diagnostic tool.
The optomap® ultra-widefield retinal imaging device captures more than 80% of your retina in one image. Traditional methods typically reveal only 10-45% of your retina at one time.
The optomap® is fast, easy, and comfortable for anyone. The entire image process consists of you looking into the device one eye at a time. The optomap® images are shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you. Schedule your optomap® today!
