Ogata EyeCare offers the optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of our eye exams. The retina is the inside lining of your eye that captures the image of what you are looking at, similar to film in a camera. Our doctors can capture nearly the entire view of your retina with a simple click of this specialized flash photography.
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 seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
The optomap® Retinal Exam produces an image that is as unique as you fingerprint and provides us with a wide view to look for eye disease that may affect your vision, and also provides clues about your body-wide health.
An optomap® Retinal Exam provides:
- A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease.
- A view of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view than he/she 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, comfortable, and recommended 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 image is shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you. Schedule your comprehensive eye exam including the optomap® Retinal Exam today!
