We are happy to announce that we are now offering Optomap eye exams!
The Optomap produces a high-resolution 200° image in order to discern the overall health of your retina. Traditional eye exams are typically able to produce 45°images.
With a thorough exam of the retina, numerous eye disorders can be diagnosed before the symptoms are experienced by the patients. This includes issues such as retinal tears, diabetes, and macular degeneration.
How long has optomap been available?
Optomap was given clearance to market by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1999.
Is Optomap as comprehensive as the old way I had my eye examined?
Optomap gives your doctor a comprehensive view that was previously unavailable and adds to your doctor’s ability to diagnose the health of your eye.
How soon will the doctor see the results?
The doctor will review the results with you today.
What does Optomap tell the doctor?
Optomap allows the doctor to assess your ocular and overall systemic health.
What age groups are candidates? Can my child be tested?
Optomap is recommended for patients of all ages.
Can I wear my contact lenses during the Optomap exam?
I have a family history of diabetes, should I have this done? Why?
It is particularly important for people who are at risk for diabetes to have an Optomap since they are prone to problems with the retina that could lead to vision loss.
Can I drive afterward?
Generally, yes. The Optomap exam will NOT blur your vision or make you sensitive to light. However, if as above, you are dilated in combination with optomap, we recommend that you do not drive for 1 – 2 hours.
How often is it recommended to have an Optomap done?
Optomap should be part of every comprehensive eye exam, and you should have your eyes completely examined as your doctor recommends.
