What is Optomap?

Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina.

Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy – especially if you are diabetic.

Why is a retinal diabetic eye exam so important?

First we can determine if you have or are developing any of a number of eye diseases that are associated with diabetes.  Also, some of the first signs of diseases such as stroke, diabetes and even some cancers can be seen in your retina, often before you have other symptoms.  An Optomap makes it easier to see them.

How will optomap benefit me?

The ultra-widefield Optomap may help your doctor detect problems more quickly and easily.  Unlike traditional retinal exams, the Optomap image can be saved for future comparisons.

How long does it take?

Your appointment will take about 30 minutes and you have have the results of the Optomap scan before you leave.

Does it hurt?

No.  It is completely comfortable and the scan takes less than a second. No drops or dilation is required.

Is an optomap safe for children?

Yes.  In fact, many vision problems begin in early childhood, so it’s important for children to receive quality routine eye care.

Are there side effects?

Optomap images are created by non-invasive, low-intensity scanning lasers.  No adverse health effects have been reported in over 50 million sessions.
