Optomap ® Retinal Imaging

As a routine part of your annual eye exam, your eye care provider can conduct and evaluate an Optomap ®. Having an Optomap ® is fast, painless, and comfortable. Nothing touches your cornea at any time during the test, and it is suitable for every member of your family. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time, and you will see a flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The image capture takes less than a half second, and they are available immediately for you to see.


What are the benefits of Optomap ® retinal imaging?

Early signs of disease could be present in the peripheral part of your retina, and remain undetected for a long time when using traditional methods. The Optomap ® ulta-widefield retinal image is a unique technology that captures more than 80% of your retina in a single image while traditional imaging methods typically only show 15% of your retina at one time. Unlike an eye dilation, the Optomap ® image can be saved for future comparisons. Under normal circumstances, dilation drops might not be necessary, but your eye care practitioner will decide if your pupils need to be dilated.
