Optomap Digital Retinal Imaging
Optomap Digital Retinal Imaging is an improved technology in which your doctor can take high-resolution digital photographs of the interior portion of your eye called the retina. The color photograph, taken by means of a specialized retinal camera, shows detailed images of the various structures of the retina including the optic nerve, blood vessels, nerve fiber layer, and the macula. It can show abnormalities that may threaten normal vision. It provides a baseline for comparison with previous and future visits, which aids in monitoring disease progression and response to therapy.
- Your images are available immediately
- Specialized software can help a family member understand in what way your vision may be affected and how you see your world
- Digital photographs can be sent electronically to a co-managing doctor, if appropriate, allowing for more timely diagnosis and treatment
