Most people consider an eye exam to be an inspection of the front of their eyes. However, doctors needs to examine the back of your eye, the retina, to check that it is healthy and not damaged or showing signs of disease. Many eye diseases, if detected at an early stage, can be treated successfully without total loss of vision.
Obtaining Optomap Retinal Images is comfortable, quick and very simple. By looking into the Optomap Eyepiece, the digital image of your retina is captured in less than a second. A small flash indicates the image has been taken. Nothing touches your eye during the process. The image is then immediately available for our doctors to review with you.
The Optomap Retinal Exam provides our doctors with important information about your health, without the need for uncomfortable pupil dilation.
