Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. We offer the optomap as an important part of our eye exams. The optomap produces an image that is unique and providers Dr. Muir with a high resolution 200 degree image in order to ascertain the health of your retina. This is much wider than a traditional view. Many eye problems can develop without your knowing, in fact, you may not even notice any change in your sight - fortunately, diseases or damage such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
The inclusion of optomap as part of a comprehensive eye exam providers:
- A scan to show a healhy eye or detect disease
- A view of the retina, giving Dr. Muir a more comprehensive view than they can get by any other means
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap image of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam
- A permanent record for your file, which allows Dr. Muir to view your images at each visit to look for changes
The optomap is fast, easy and comfortable for anyone. The entire image process consists of you looking into the device one eye at a time.
