In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, VisionFirst is proud to announce the inclusion of the Optomap™ retinal exam as an integral part of your exam. Your Doctor is concerned about retinal problems including macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes or detachments, and systemic diseases such as diabetes, stroke, and high blood pressure. These conditions can lead to serious health problems, including partial loss of vision or blindness, and often develop without warning and progress with no symptoms.

An Optomap™ exam provides:
- An eye wellness scan
- An in depth view of the retinal layers (where disease can start)
- The ability for you to view your Optomap™ retinal image with your Doctor during your exam
- An annual, permanent record of your medical file, which gives your Doctor comparisons for tracking and diagnosing potential eye disease
- The Optomap™ exam is fast, easy, and comfortable.
Why is an Optomap™ Retinal Examination such an important tool for your doctor?
With the Optomap™ Retinal Examination, the majority of the retina is visible in one single image.
Conventional retinal imaging technology only captures a small area of the retina at one time. Images will be stored electronically.
Your Optomap™ Retinal Images will be stored electronically. This gives your Doctor a permanent record of the condition of your retina. This is very important in assisting your Doctor to detect and measure any changes to your retina next time you get your eyes examined. Your Doctor strongly recommends that you make the Optomap™ exam a part of your eye exam.
