We are pleased to inform you that during your next visit to Davis Eye Care, you will experience the benefits of the latest technology in eye exams – the Optomap™ Retinal Exam. The Optomap will produce the most comprehensive image of your retina, and allow us to perform a more thorough exam than was previously possible. The result is that we can better prevent or reduce vision loss in our patients with a simple, quick and patient-friendly new exam.
Any routine eye exam should always include a careful look at the retina, which is located at the back of the eye, to screen for abnormalities or disease. The sensitive tissue that makes up the retina is susceptible to a variety of diseases that can ultimately lead to partial loss of vision or even complete blindness. Early detection of any retinal abnormality is thus crucial. Previously, this screening was done by dilating the pupils, a procedure that many patients found uncomfortable, inconvenient and time-consuming.
The Optomap is made possible by using a new technology – the Panoramic200™ Retinal Imaging System. The Optomap enables us to see nearly all of your retina.
The Optomap exam is simple: at the push of a button, we can generate a computer image of your retina for immediate review. Experience with this technology has already led to improved disease detection and has possibly prevented vision loss and blindness in several patients.
We will be discussing this revolutionary exam with you further at your next appointment. Here at Davis Eye Care, we are dedicated to offering our patients the best eye care possible, and acquiring the tools to help us do so. We look forward to seeing you during your next visit – and providing the most comprehensive and advanced vision care available.
