We use cutting-edge digital imaging technology to assess your eyes. So as a part of your comprehensive visit, we are proud to offer the Optomap® Retinal Exam. Many eye problems can develop without your knowledge. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
The Optomap® produces an image that is as unique as your fingerprint and provides us with a wide view of the health of your retina. The retina captures the image of what you are looking at, similar to film in a camera, and is located in the back part of your eye.
The optomap® Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The optomap® image is shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you. Please schedule your optomap® Retinal Exam today!
