The Optomap Retinal exam is fast, painless and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. To have the exam, you simply look into the instrument one eye at a time (like looking through a keyhole) and you will see a green flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken.
The capture takes less than a second. Images are available immediately for review and permanently stored for future comparison. You can see your own retina. You see exactly what your optometrist sees - even in a 3D animation.
Benefits of an Optomap Retinal Exam
The benefits of having an Optomap ultra-widefield retinal image taken are:
- Early protection from vision impairment or blindness
- Early detection of life-threatening diseases like cancer, stroke and cardiovascular disease
The unique Optomap ultra-widefield view helps your optometrist detect early signs of retinal disease more effectively and efficiently than with traditional eye exams.
Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.
