Bringing the most advanced technology to our patients, we recommend optomap® ultra-wide digital retinal imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam today. The optomap® ultra-wide system helps you and our doctors make informed decisions about your eye health and overall well-being.
It takes only seconds to perform, is not painful, and typically does not require dilation. However, if abnormalities are found on the retina, it may be necessary to dilate the eyes also. The images collected through Optomap® imaging are valuable because they make the evaluation of the retina more like turning the lights on in a room versus searching for something in a dark room with a flashlight. They also provide historical data that can be compared with previous images to track changes over time.

Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. Family Vision Center of Crosby and Porter offer the optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of our eye exams. The optomap® Retinal Exam produces an image that is as unique as you fingerprint and provides [Doctor Name(s)] with a wide view to look at the health of your retina. The retina is the part of your eye that captures the image of what you are looking at, similar to film in a camera.
Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.

A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease.
A view of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view than he/she can get by other means.
