What is your retina?
The retina is a delicate lining at the back of the eye similar to film in a camera. Light strikes the retina through the lens in your eye and produces a picture which is then sent to the brain, enabling you to see.
Why is a healthy retina important?
An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals to your brain which can result in impaired vision or blindness. Most retinal conditions and other diseases can be treated successfully with early detection.
Without a comprehensive eye exam, you may not be aware of a potential problem. You may see clearly, and because the retina has no nerve endings, you may not feel any pain, a symptom which may otherwise prompt you to see your doctor.
Check and maintain the health of your eyes with our new advanced method.
Your doctor recommends the optomap® Retinal Exam as an integral part of your eye exam today. An optomap provides your doctor with a view of approximately 82% of your retina in a single capture and helps your doctor to evaluate your visual health.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on, you might not even notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina.
An optomap® Retinal Exam provides:
- A scan to confirm a healthy eye or, to detect the presence of disease.
- An overview or map of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view than can be achieved by other means.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap images of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your doctor to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
The optomap Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable.
PLEASE NOTE: The doctor strongly believes an optomap is an essential part of your comprehensive eye exam. However, some health plans do not cover the optomap Retinal Exam, which means that you may be responsible for an additional fee.
