Optomap Retinal Image
Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. Heritage Eye Care offers the optomap® Retinal Image as an important part of our eye exams. The optomap® Retinal Image produces a picture that is as unique as you fingerprint and provides Dr. Yoakum and Dr. Stone with a wide view to look at the health of your retina. The retina is the part of your eye that captures the image of what you are looking at, similar to film in a camera.
Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
An optomap® Retinal Image provides:
- A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease.
- A view of the retina, giving us a more detailed view than we can get by other means.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap® image of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your file, which allows Dr. Yoakum, Dr. Stone, andDr. Aleshia Luu to view your images each year to look for changes.
The optomap® Retinal Imaging is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. To have the image taken, you simply look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The optomap® image is shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you.
