We offer Optus retinal imaging for all of our eye exam patients. Optos is an ultra-wide digital retinal imaging system. It enables the doctor to capture over 80% of the retina in just one panoramic image. This improves the doctor’s ability to discover signs of disease and other potential problems as early as possible. With eye disease as with other diseases, early detection is key to positive treatment outcomes. Using Optus retinal imaging, the eye doctor is better able to detect things like macular degeneration, glaucoma, hypertension and diabetic retinopathy. The digital image is like a map of the retina, called an Optomap. Using this advanced technological tool, the eye doctor can analyze and diagnose issues. He is also able to document the condition with physical printouts. Finally, the eye doctor can monitor the condition with continued use of the Optus retinal imaging tool.
Don’t risk your overall health by ignoring your eye health. With regular eye exams, you and your children will have the best possible outcomes for optimal vision your whole lives.
