OPTOMAP RETINAL IMAGING
An advanced instrument that allows us to check the health of your eyes much more thoroughly and with unparalleled precision.
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY IN EYECARE
At Heath Optometric we have always recognised the importance technology plays in putting our patient's eye health first.
We were one of the first opticians in the UK to invest in Optomap ultra-widefield retinal imaging technology over 20 years ago. Since then it has been an additional examination we offer our patients to give a more comprehensive view of the back of the eye.
The Optomap ultra-widefield retinal image is a unique technology that captures more than 80% of your retina in a single image while traditional imaging methods typically only show 15% of your retina at one time.
This enables our Optometrists to detect early signs of retinal disease more effectively and efficiently than with traditional eye exams.
WHY CHOOSE OPTOMAP?
Did you know eye exams can also check the health of your body, as well as the health of your eye?
The eye is the only place in the body where it's possible to directly look in and see blood vessels and arteries – so it forms an important part of your eye examination even if you are not experiencing any vision problems.
view 80% of your retina instantly in a quick and easy capture
show early signs of many diseases, retinal and others (such as diabetes and hypertension) before you notice any symptoms
facilitate early protection from vision impairment or blindness
let you see your own retinal image.
Optomap scans are quick, painless and nothing touches your eye. They are safe for children and there are no known side affects.
