Bringing the most advanced technology to our patients, we recommend optomap® ultra-wide digital retinal imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam today.
The optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging system helps you and your eye doctor to 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.
What is your retina?
The retina is a delicate lining at the back of the eye similar to film in a camera. Light strikes the retina through the lens in your eye and produces a picture which is then sent to the brain, enabling you to see.
What can happen to the retina?
Your retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means, in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases such as stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes can also be seen in the retina. Early detection is essential so treatments can be administered.
How does the optomap help?
The optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging system captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image. Traditional methods typically reveal only 10-15% of your retina at one time.
The unique optomap ultra-wide 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.
Will my eyes need to be dilated and does it hurt?
An optomap takes only seconds to perform, is not painful, and typically does not require dilation. However, as every individual is unique, your eye doctor may decide dilation is still needed.
