What Is Ultra-Widefield Retinal Imaging?
Eye Solutions offers the optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of our eye exams. What are the benefits of the optomap? The optomap® Retinal Exam produces an image that is as unique as your fingerprint and provides Dr. Ross with a wide view to look at the health of your retina.
The retina is the part of your eye that captures the image of what you are looking at, similar to film in a camera.
Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
- A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease.
- A view of the retina, giving Dr. Ross a more detailed view than she can get by other means.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap® image of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your file, which allows Dr. Ross to view your images each year to look for changes.
The optomap® Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The optomap® image is shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you.
