An optomap® retinal scan provides:

  • An ultra-widefield 200° image of the surface of the retina taken in seconds
    • Dilation drops are not necessary, but our doctors will decide if your pupils need to be dilated for further testing, particularly to view the periphery 
    • Dilation shows 15% of your retina at one time vs. optomap’s ability to capture 82% of your retina in one capture
  • Early detection, diagnosis and improved treatment guidance for many eye conditions and diseases, such as glaucoma, aged-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic retinopathy, retinal tears or detachments, as well as early signs of life-threatening systemic diseases such as cancer, stroke, aneurysm and cardiovascular disease
  • 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 our doctor to look for subtle changes in your retina every year
