The Optomap Retinal Exam gives us a fantastic view of the "inside" of your eye without pupil dilation . The Optomap is quick and painless. It provides a wide-field view of your retina, which is the part of your eye that captures the image of what you are looking at, similar to film in a camera. This allows us to detect conditions such as:
- Macular degeneration
- Retinal detachment
- Diabetes and high blood pressure
You will have the opportunity to view and discuss the Optomap image of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
A permanent record will be kept in your file, which allows us to view your images each year to look for changes.
