One of the most common misnomers of eye care is, “I see well, so my eyes are healthy”. Unfortunately, this is not always true. You can be of any age, young or old, with great vision, and have a health condition in the eyes that can eventually lead to vision loss or even death. This is why our standard of care at Eyedeology Optometry is to perform a comprehensive eye exam on every patient. We recommend the Optomap retina imaging. Please continue reading below for more information on this amazing technology.
What is Optomap retinal imaging?
With traditional, small-field, and even widefield retinal imaging, only 10-100⁰ of the retina can be captured in a single image. optomap is the only true, clinically validated, ultra-widefield retinal image than can capture 82% or 200⁰ of the retina, in a single capture, in each imaging modality – an increase of 50% over the next closest imaging device1. With optomap auto-montage, up to 97% or 220⁰ of the retina can be imaged with the multi-capture, montaging functionality.
Optomap offers unparalleled views of the retina which provide eye care professionals with the following:
The only anatomically correct 200⁰ or 82% image of the retina
Simultaneous view of the central pole, mid-periphery and periphery
Integrated hardware & software platform
Multiple retinal imaging modalities to see more, discover more, and treat more patient diseases and pathologies, more effectively
With more than 600 published and ongoing clinical trials, as well as thousands of case studies and testimonials, show the long-term value of optomap imaging in diagnosis, treatment planning, and patient engagement
