Good Eyecare Begins With A Yearly Eye Exam!
Although many do not realize it, the best way to protect your vision is with a yearly eye checkup. Even a basic eye exam can instantly detect such health-threatening conditions as tumors, vascular irregularities and diabetes-related injury to the retina. At Pickerington Eyecare, this basic checkup is brief and painless.
Optomap Retinal Exam
The Optomap Retinal Exam is used by your eye doctor to get an ultra-widefield view of the retina (the back of the eye). In addition to evaluating prescription changes and the health of the front of the eye, a thorough screening of the retina is a critical component of your vision and eye health examination. Traditionally, your doctor uses eye drops to dilate your pupils and is limited to evaluating your retina in sections. This new technology gives you and your doctor an unprecedented view and is the only method that makes it possible to see your entire retina at once. The exam is quick, painless, and may eliminate the need for eye drops. Dr. Tracy, Dr. Ryen, and Dr. Storm strongly believe that the Optomp Retinal Exam is an essential part of your comprehensive eye examination and highly recommend it for all patients once per year.
An Optomap Retinal Screening provides:
- A scan that takes seconds to confirm a healthy eye or, to detect the presence of common diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetes, hypertension, retinal tears and detachments, and even cancer
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss your Optomap images of your eyes with your doctor during your exam
- A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your doctor to compare your images at each examination for early detection of potential problems
InfantSEE, a public health program, managed by Optometry's Charity-The AOA Foundation, is designed to ensure that eye and vision care becomes an integral part of infant wellness care to improve a child's quality of life. Under this program, AOA optometrists provide a comprehensive eye and vision assessment for infants six to twelve months of age regardless of a family's income or access to insurance coverage.
One in every 10 children is at risk from undiagnosed eye and vision problems, yet only 13 percent of children younger than 2 years of age have seen an eye and vision care professional for a regular check-up or well-care visit. Assessments at six to twelve months of age can determine healthy development of vision. Early detection of eye conditions is the best way to ensure a baby has healthy vision for successful development now and in the future.
During the exam, our doctors look for answers to the same questions you are:
- Does the patient history suggest a problem?
- Can the baby see?
- Are the eyes straight?
- Are the eyes healthy?
- Is intervention necessary?
Our doctors will use specialized testing and techniques to answer these questions and determine if your infant is at risk for any eye and/or vision problems like amblyopia or lazy eye, nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and others.
