In addition to your eye test, we are able to offer Optomap® retinal screening, which takes a closer look at the health of your eye and can be an early detector for several diseases and health concerns that affect the whole body, not just the eyes.
A retinal screening using Optomap® takes seconds and is pain free. Images of your retina will be taken and then examined by your optometrist, and we can keep the images to compare each time you visit us for an eye exam.
Retinal screening has been used for early detection of conditions including strokes, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes.
Optomap can take an image of up to 200 degrees of the back of your eye, through as small as a 2mm pupil and it captures in 0.25 seconds. It can look at changes on a cellular level which cannot be seen by the naked human eye.
This allows our Optometrist to see much more of the back of the eye than ever before in order to check that everything is healthy.
