The Optomap is unique in that it gives Dr. Forster and Dr. Miranda a much larger view (200 degrees) of the back of the eye – your retina – than conventional eye exam instrumentation. The images can be taken without dilating your pupils – a very common procedure which is uncomfortable and inconvenient for many people.
The Optomap image is displayed immediately after being taken, allowing our doctors to review it quickly and if necessary, refer you to a retinal specialist.
Each Optomap image is as individual as fingerprints or DNA and can provide Dr. Forster and Dr. Miranda with a unique view of your health very quickly and completely. The Optomap image is captured in less than one second and is immediately available for you and your doctor to review.
An Optomap Retinal Exam provides:
- A scan to confirm a healthy eye or detect the presence of disease.
- An overview or map of the retina, giving the eye doctor a more detailed view than he/she can achieve by other means.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the Optomap images of your eye with our eye doctor at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your medical file, enabling our optometrists to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
