WOW! That’s what all our patients say when they see their own OptoMap.
What is OptiMap? Simply, OptiMap is a wide-angle digital photograph of the back of your eye. It takes only a few seconds to perform, and its painless! It’s a photograph. The optometrist and you will go over your OptoMap together. Your OptoMap becomes part of your digital record, and can be used as comparison in future eye evaluations. Many vision and medical insurances now cover the cost of digital imaging.
Some of the first signs of diseases such as stroke, diabetes, and even some cancers can be seen in your retina, often before you have other symptoms. An Optomap makes it easier to see them.
Yes. In fact, may vision problems begin in early childhood, so it’s important for children to receive quality routine eye care.
The Optomap is a panoramic digital image of the retina produced by Optos scanning laser technology. It is the only technology that can show a wide 82% view of your retina at one time.
No. It is completely comfortable and the scan takes less than a second.
The ultra-widefield Optomap may help your eye doctor detect problems more quickly and easily. Unlike traditional retinal exams, the Optomap image can be saved for future comparisons.
It is generally recommended that you have an Optomap each time you have an eye exam.
Optomap images are created by non-invasive, low-intensity scanning lasers. No adverse health effects have been reported in over 50 million sessions.
