DAYTONA ULTRA-WIDEFIELD RETINAL IMAGING
Optomap is a low-powered scanning laser ophthalmoscope that digitally scans the retina. It provides the doctor with a view of approximately 82% of your retina. The procedure is non-invasive and takes only seconds to complete. Different wavelengths of laser light are used to capture the image. The image can then be filtered, allowing various layers of the retina to be evaluated which helps the doctor to evaluate your visual health.
Many eye problems can develop and progress without any warnings or symptoms, and you may never notice any changes to your vision early on. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears/detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina.
An Optomap retinal image provides:
•Confirmation of a healthy eye or may detect the presence of disease.
•An overview or map of the retina, giving the doctor a more detailed view can be achieved than with other traditional tools.
•No side effects. You can resume normal activities immediately.
•The opportunity for you to view and discuss the Optomap images with the doctor at the time of your exam.
•A permanent record for your medical files, enabling comparison at future exams.
•Images that can be sent to another specialist, your primary care physician, or yourself.
