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
