Optomap Ultra-Widefield Retinal Image

The optomap ultra-widefield retinal image is a unique technology that captures more than 80{43305175de3db51252c83cd1919d090c7e8180b3238e40416e3fb67448cc8663} of your retina in one panoramic image while traditional imaging methods typically only show 15{43305175de3db51252c83cd1919d090c7e8180b3238e40416e3fb67448cc8663} of your retina at one time.

The benefits of having an optomap ultra-widefield retinal image taken are:

  • Optomap facilitates early protection from vision impairment or blindness
  • Early detection of life-threatening diseases like cancer, stroke, and cardiovascular disease

The unique optomap ultra-widefield view helps your eye care practitioner detect early signs of retinal disease more effectively and efficiently than with traditional eye exams

Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT)

Our OCT helps us better manage glaucoma and diseases of the retina because this technology allows the eye doctor to see the deep tissue layers in the eye. These high-definition images are the only way that they can actually see beneath the surface to the nerve fiber layers where damage occurs. Up until now, eye doctors had to use other tests to indicate damage in this critical area of sight. Common eye diseases such macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma are detected early by the OCT when the diseases can be more effectively treated.
