Optomap Retinal Imaging
MONROE FAMILY EYECARE OFFERS REVOLUTION
MODALITY FOR RETINAL DISEASE DETECTION
Optomap® Retinal Exam introduces a new standard of care
Monroe Family Eyecare is now offering to patients the Optomap® Retinal Exam, by Optos®, Inc. The Optomap Retinal Exam is a scanning laser ophthalmoscope that captures an image of virtually the entire retina.
Doctors Feldman, Siegel, Punim and Gollinger are extremely pleased to offer this new technology to their patients. "Most patients feel they should only be examined when they need a change in prescription. In reality, the most important part of the examination is determining the health of the retina. The Optomap provides us a permanent digital image which we can manipulate and magnify to have the most comprehensive view of the back of the eye in order to better and more effectively discover abnormalities that may be present."
The Optomap® Retinal Exam non-invasively captures an instantaneous, ultra-widefield digital scan of the retina, revealing important information for the comprehensive evaluation of systemic and ocular health. The 200 degree internal scan captured in a quarter of a second enhances clinical care, patient satisfaction and practice efficiency. It is performed quickly and easily enabling practitioners to spend more time analyzing, diagnosing and educating rather than gathering information. Optomap scans are performed as an initial step in a comprehensive eye exam, giving practitioners a tool to help discover retinal disease. This offers an assisted opportunity to diagnose eye conditions - as well as other health conditions - early. Importantly, it enables the practitioner to effectively determine the next course of action.
Early detection of any retinal abnormality may lead to earlier and safer treatments and in many cases prevents vision loss. The Optomap Retinal Exam should be performed annually regardless of symptoms, thereby allowing doctors to observe subtle changes occurring as patient's age.
Since the Optomap Retinal Exam's inception in 1999, millions of exams have been conducted world wide, aiding in the detection and diagnosis of serious eye conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachments, macular degeneration, and other pathologies like melanomas.
