The Optomap® Retinal Exam is used to get an ultra-widefield view of the back of the eye. In most cases, this is done without dilation. 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. The exam is quick, painless, and may not require dilation drops. Dr. Rhodes, Dr. Zemanovich and Dr. Whelan will educate you about the structures of your retina and interactively review and discuss the results of your exam. The optomap® photography provides a permanent record of the condition of your retina, which will allow the doctors to compare each year’s image side-by-side to discover subtle changes in your eyes and to monitor your continuing eye health.
As part of your eye exam, our doctors recommend a special diagnostic procedure called the Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT. It is a sophisticated scanning system that produces highly detailed images of the retina. It is often likened to an MRI or x-ray of the eye, but it does not produce any radiation. This scan allows our doctors to see detailed images of the retina (the inner most layer of the interior eye), which enables them to accurately detect, monitor and control changes to the retina. This procedure is currently the only one that shows in-depth images of the internal structures of the eyes. Other procedures, such as the Optomap®, only show the surface of these structures.
