Early detection is vital.
The optomap ultra-widefield digital retinal imaging device helps you and your eye doctor make informed decisions about your eye health and overall well-being. Combining your eye doctor’s expertise and optomap technology, optomap brings your eye exam to life.
What is your retina?
The retina is a delicate lining at the back of the eye similar to film in a camera.
Light strikes the retina through the lens in your eye and produces a picture which is then sent to the brain, enabling you to see.
Why is a healthy retina important?
An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals to your brain which can result in impaired vision or blindness. Most retinal conditions and other diseases can be treated successfully with early detection.
Without a comprehensive eye exam, you may not be aware of a potential problem. You may see clearly, and because the retina has no nerve endings, you may not feel any pain, a symptom which may otherwise prompt you to see your doctor.
