Optos Retinal Exam

Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health.

During your next comprehensive exam visit to our office, you can experience* the benefits of the latest technology in eye care – the optomap®.

The optomap® Retinal Exam produces an image that is as unique as your fingerprint and provides us with an ultra-wide view to look at the health of your retina.   With the optomap we can discover any abnormalities or confirm the health of your retina, diagnose any potentially harmful diseases, and if necessary, determine the best course of action.

Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. 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 early detection of any retinal abnormality is crucial to maintaining your ocular and systemic health because in most cases of eye disease, in the early stages, you will experience no signs or symptoms.

The optomap has many advantages:

  • It is a simple, non-invasive procedure. In less than a second we can generate a high-resolution, digital, color image of your retina.
  • This image becomes a part of your permanent medical record and enables us to see more of your retina, measure aspects of your eye, and magnify some of the finer details.
  • We can also track changes in your eye over time by comparing each year’s optomap.
  • In addition, you take a more active role in your eye care by reviewing the images with your doctor and learning more about how best to protect your vision.
