Optomap® Retinal Exam
Linsey Eyecare has recently added a new service to provide you with more quality options in preventive vision care. Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. That’s why we now offer the optomap Retinal Exam as an important part of our quality eye exams. The optomap Retinal Exam produces an image that is as unique as your fingerprint and provides us 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 detected with a thorough exam of the retina.
An optomap Retinal Exam provides:
• A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease.
• A view of the retina, giving our doctors a more detailed view than we can get by other means.
• The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap image of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
• A permanent record for your file, which allows us to view your images each year to look for changes.
The optomap Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The optomap® image is shown immediately on a computer screen so our doctors can review it with you.
