The Emerging Standard for Eye Heath.
First let’s talk about how your eye doctor normally examines your eyes, the retina. Examining the retina is challenging. Your retina (the back of the eye) is examined by looking through your pupil to see the layer of tissue that covers the back and inside walls of your eye. Traditional viewing methods such as dilation, can be effective, but the doctor gets a very narrow view of the back of the eye. However, in the case of basic dilation, you have no digital record to keep year to year history of the pathology of your eye.
We have new technology with optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging as our comprehensive eye examination. With optomap you and your eye doctor can make informed decisions about your eye health and overall well-being. The optomap systems captures more than 80% of your retina as opposed to the traditional methods which only reveal 10-12% of your retina at one time.
This unique optomap ultra-wide view enhances your eye doctor’s ability to detect even the earliest sign of disease that presents itself on your retina. In the ability to see most of the retina all at once allows your eye doctor more time to review your images and educate you about your eye health.
Protect Your Vision. Although you may see clearly, it is still important to have your retina checked. The retina has no nerve endings and may not feel pain so there may be a problem that you are not aware of. It is important to make sure your retina is healthy. An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals and this can result in impaired vision or blindness. If detected early, most retinal conditions and other diseases can be treated successfully.
