Optomap - Retinal Imaging
Optomap retinal imaging.
The Optomap exam is fast, painless and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. To have th exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time (like looking through a keyhole) and ou will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken.
Under normal circumstances, dilation drops might not be necessary, but your eye care practioner will decide if your pupils need to be dilated depending on your conditions. The capture takes less than a second. Images are available immediately for review. You can see your own retina. You see exactly what your eye care practioner sees - even in a 3D animation.
The optomap ultra-widefield retinal image is a unique technology that captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image while traditional imaging methods typically only show 15% of your retina at one time.
You can have this retina imaging done whenever you would like. You do not have to be dilated to have an Optomap done.
