Helping you maintain healthy eyes
Check and maintain the health of your eyes with optomap®
Your doctor recommends an optomap as an integral part of your eye exam today. An Optomap provides your doctor with a view of approximately 82% of your retina in a single capture and helps your doctor to evaluate your visual health.
Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. The Optomap produces an image that is unique and provides doctors with a high-resolution 200° image in order to ascertain the health of your retina. This is much wider than a traditional 45° image. Many eye problems can develop without you know, in fact, you may not even notice any change in your sight – fortunately, diseases or damage 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 is fast, easy, and comfortable for anyone. The entire image process consists of you looking into the device one eye at a time. The Optomap images are shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you.
An Optomap retinal image provides:
- Information on the health of your eyes.
- An overview or map of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view that can be achieved with other traditional tools.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap images with your doctor at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your doctor to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
Getting an Optomap is fast, easy, and comfortable.
PLEASE NOTE: Your doctor strongly believes an Optomap is an essential part of your comprehensive eye exam. However, some health plans do not cover Optomap, which means that you may be responsible for an additional fee.
