While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy. This can lead to early detection of common diseases such as glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, and even cancer. And, best of all, the exam is quick, painless, and may not require dilation drops.
An optomap exam provides a view of approximately 82 percent of your retina in a single capture and helps to evaluate your visual health. Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. An optomap retinal exam provides:
- A scan to confirm a healthy eye or to detect the presence of disease.
- An overview or map of the retina, giving a more detailed view than can be achieved by any other means.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap images of your eye at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your medical file, enabling us to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
Best of all, this exam is FREE with any Heartland Optical eye examination!
