The Optomap® is a digital image of the retina produced by Optos scanning laser technology. It is the only technology that can capture 82% view of your retina at one time.
By taking high-resolution pictures inside the eye, a digital imaging system can be used to record a detailed photo of the retina.
Retinal photography assists in the detection and management of conditions such as macular degeneration, hypertensive retinopathy optic nerve disease, diabetic changes, and retinal holes or thinning.
There is a nominal charge for this screening. You can check with your vision insurance if retinal imaging is covered or if there's a discount.
The ultra-widefield Optomap® may help the doctor to detect problems more quickly and easily. Unlike traditional retinal exams, the Optomap® image can be saved for future comparison.
Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduce the risk to your sight and health.
Optomap® images are created by non-invasive, low-intensity scanning lasers. No adverse health effects have been reported in over 150 million sessions. There are no threats to your eye or your overall health when undergoing retinal imaging.
Some of the first signs of diseases such as stroke, diabetes, and even some cancers can be seen in your retina, often before you have other symptoms. An Optomap® makes it easier to see them.
