The Optomap™ examines a high-resolution digital photo taken of the back of your eye that allows the doctor to detect and measure changes to your retina. It works by providing an eye wellness scan with in-depth views of the retina. It is very fast, easy and comfortable. Having an Optomap exam means no more dialated eye exams.

No More Dilated
Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina. Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy.
