OPTOMAP RETINAL EXAM (OPTOS DAYTONA PLUS)
WE CARE ABOUT YOUR EYE HEALTH
We are proud to introduce the latest in retinal imaging technology, the Optomap, which we recommend to ALL patients. It is painless, quick, and the doctor’s preferred method to obtain a road map of most of your retina in a single glance, which is helpful when evaluating the overall health of the back of your eye, It is the BEST screening device available to help detect the earliest retinal changes related to hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal breaks, and cancers in the eye – BEFORE you notice any central vision changes.
THIS TECHNOLOGY IS NOW OUR NEW STANDARD OF HIGH QUALITY CARE.
Just because you see well does NOT mean your eyes are healthy. By the time you have symptoms affecting your vision, it is typically too late to prevent permanent sight loss. Early detection of small changes, especially of asymptomatic diseases that start in the retinal periphery, is crucial to saving your sight. We care about your vision and want to be sure we actively monitor and care for your eyes. The Optomap retinal image is the best way to do this.
Although NOT a substitute for getting your pupils dilated (associated with light sensitivity and inability to see up close), which we still recommend to all first-time patients, the Optomap is an excellent alternative by imaging 82% of the retina with a single capture, and 97% with four captures. This retinal scan can usually be done WITHOUT THE NEED FOR PUPILLARY DILATION and will be a permanent part of your medical record, allowing us to detect subtle changes, when compared to future scans over time, otherwise UNDETECTABLE by the human eye.
