The Family Eye Care Center & Optical Gallery is proud to offer the most advanced retinal imaging technology, the Optomap®. This instrument takes a 200 degree wide-field digital image of the back of your eye (retina) through undilated pupils. The resulting image of each eye’s retina enhances the doctor’s ability to detect and monitor your eye health including systemic conditions and ocular diseases. Diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, some cancers, glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal tears and retinal detachments can all be detected through this type of evaluation. Early detection is critical to help maintain one’s ocular health as well as overall health.
Remarkably, the Optomap® allows your doctor to view the retina of each eye in a pain-free, non-invasive manner. Also, for the majority of patients, having these digital retinal images taken will eliminate the need for dilation.
Should you decide to have the Optomap® screening performed on your eyes during your routine eye exam, the doctor will review the images with you during your visit. The images will be stored in your permanent medical record at the Family Eye Care Center & Optical Gallery.
There is a cost of $39.00 to perform this procedure and it is not covered by insurance. This cost is in addition to other possible charges for your eye exam such as copays and deductibles.
