Bringing the most advanced technology to our patients, we recommend optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam.
The optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging system allows us to make informed decisions about your eye health and overall well-being.
What is your retina and why is it important?
The retina is the delicate lining of the inside of the eye and is like the film in a camera.
It receives light through the lens in your eye and produces a picture which is then sent to the brain, enabling you to see.
It is important to make sure that your retina is healthy. An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals and this can result in impaired vision or blindness. If detected early, most retinal conditions and other diseases can be treated successfully.
How does 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 10-12% 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 presents 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.
