The Optomap is a scanning laser ophthalmoscope that assists our optometrists in evaluating the health of your retina. This state-of-the-art technology quickly and comfortably scans the inside of the eye…without dilating eye drops.
Optomap technology creates an ultra-wide digital scan of the retina that enables our optometrists to examine the retinal layers in depth. We can track changes in your eyes over time by comparing Optomap exams from year to year.
The sensitive tissue that makes up the retina is susceptible to a variety of diseases that may lead to partial or complete vision loss, including diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.
Early detection of retinal disorders is critical to preventing serious disease progression and loss of vision. Optomap exams are valuable because early stage eye disease often causes few signs or symptoms. Equally important is the fact that the Optomap may help detect diseases that affect not just your eyes, but also your overall health.
The Optomap Retinal Exam is a simple procedure. In less than a second, with one click of a button, this instrument non-invasively generates a high-resolution, digital, color image. This image becomes part of your permanent medical record.
