Optomap | Ultra-Widefield Retinal Imaging
Take a closer look with Optomap™.
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™ ulta-wide digital retinal imaging system helps make an informed decision about your eye health and overall well-being. Combining our optometrist's expertise and optomap technology, optomap brings your eye examination to life.
Early detection is vital.
An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals to your brain which can result in impared vision or blindness. Most retinal conditions and other diseases can be treated successfully with early detection.
Although you may see clearly, a comprehensive eye exam is essential to check the health of your retinas. The retina has no nerve endings so you may not feel any pain and therefore be unaware of potential problems.
How does optomap™ help?
The optomap™ ulta-wide digital retinal imaging system captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image. Traditional methods typically reveal only 10-15% of your retina at one time.
The unique The optomap™ ulta-wide view enhances our optometrist's ability to detect even the earliest signs of disease that appear on your retina. Seeing most of the retina at once allows more time to review your images and educate you about your eye health.
Protect your vision | Your eyes are a window to your health.
What can happen to the retina?
Your retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be viewed directly. This means, i addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertention, and diabetes) can be seen in the retina. Early detection is essential so treatments can be administered.
Diabetes affects the eyes and the kidneys and is a leading cause of blindness. Retinopathy occurs when diabetes damages the tiny blood vessels inside the retina.
Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
The centre of the retina (the macula) can become diseased as we get older. This results in alterations to our fine central vision making daily activities such as driving and reading difficult.
Glaucoma (Increased Eye Pressure).
Glaucoma causes damage to the optic nerve and almost always developes without simptoms.
Hypertention (High Blood Pressure).
Increased pressure can result in changes to blood vessels in the eye, increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease (stroke or heart disease).
