What is an optomap Image?
Getting an optomap image is fast, painless, and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time (like looking through a keyhole) and you will see a flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken.
Under normal circumstances, dilation drops might not be necessary, but your eye care practitioner will decide if your pupils need to be dilated depending on the health of your eyes. The image capture takes less than a half-second and they are available immediately for you to see your own retina. You see exactly what your eye care practitioner sees – even in a 3D animation.
Benefits of an optomap Image
The benefits of having an optomap ultra-widefield retinal image taken are:
– optomap facilitates early protection from vision impairment or blindness
– Early detection of life-threatening diseases like cancer, stroke, and cardiovascular disease
– The unique optomap ultra-widefield view helps your eye care practitioner detect early signs of retinal disease more effectively and efficiently than with traditional eye exams.
Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.
KIDS AND THE OPTOMAP RETINAL EXAM
More than 12 million school age children have some form of a vision problem, yet few receive an eye exam before entering first grade. Optos® and Total Family Eyecare are committed to educating parents on the importance of having their children’s eyes checked regularly. The revolutionary Optomap technology was developed by Douglas Anderson after his son lost sight in one eye at the age of five due to a condition that went undetected despite routine eye examinations.
The Optomap® Retinal Exam is used by optometrists and ophthalmologists to get a comprehensive view of the retina (the back of the eye) in order to detect possible abnormalities or signs of disease, and provide early diagnosis and treatment. The Optomap is unique in that it gives eye care professionals a much larger view of your retina than conventional eye exam equipment. The Optomap image is captured in less than a second and is immediately available for both the doctor and the patient to review. Phone us at (561) 391-3334 for further details.
