Why is an Optomap Retinal Exam important?
Your doctor recommends the optomap® Retinal Exam as an integral part of your eye exam today. An optomap provides your doctor with a view of approximately 82% of your retina in a single capture and helps your doctor to evaluate your visual health.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on, you might not even notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina.
An optomap® Retinal Exam provides:
• A scan to confirm a healthy eye or, to detect the presence of disease.
• An overview or map of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view than can be achieved by other means.
• The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap images of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
• A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your doctor to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
The optomap Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable.
