Optomap Ultra-Widefield Retinal Imaging
Regular detailed examination of the inside of the eye - the retina, is critical to eye health. Until recently, most ophthalmic cameras could only photograph about 20% of the retina at a time. We now know that many eye diseases occur or begin at the periphery (outer edges) of the retina, so examining this area is extremely important.
Because seeing the entire retina is so important at See Breeze Optometry, we have invested in the most advanced camera for ultra-widefield photography. In a single shot, this camera produces "optomap" photos of about 82% of the retina. These images provide superior visibility of the retinal periphery allowing us to see, document, show you and follow pathology that could not be seen with traditional eye cameras.
The optomap is quick and painless, and combined with the thorough eye exams our doctors are trained to provide this advanced technology offers a new level of diagnostic confidence. We are proud and happy to offer this service to our patients.
