At Eyecare of CNY we do Optomap Retinal Exams to obtain a widefield view of the retina. This is a thorough screening that provides a greater view of the back of the eye and assists in detecting eye conditions and diseases.
During Optomap Retinal Exams, the eye doctor is able to see a wider view of your retina, including up to an 80% larger field of view at a time. It is a short and painless exam that allows for better detection of eye conditions and diseases that may not be seen in traditional eye exams. Traditional eye exams only offer a limited view of the retina, making the Optomap exam a more thorough look at the eye.
The Optomap exam works by the patient placing their eye up to the instrument to be scanned and photographed. Two full-color photographs are quickly taken of each eye and evaluated by the doctor. The exam can aid in finding spotting signs of macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, hypertension and cancer of the eye.
