Why have an Optomap retinal scan?
Regular vision tests allow us to check the front of your eyes in case a change is needed in your contact lens or spectacle prescription. However, we also need to check the back of your eyes (the retina) to ensure it‘s healthy.
Eye problems can develop long before the symptoms can be seen or felt. Many eye diseases, if detected at an early stage, can be treated successfully without total loss of vision.
The Optomap retinal examination is digital and it gives us a permanent record of the condition of your retina. This is very important in helping us to detect and measure changes to your retina next time you attend.
Millions of people worldwide have benefited from an Optomap retinal examination; a new standard in healthcare for adults and children.
What are the benefits of a retinal exam?
Does an Optomap exam hurt?
The Optomap retinal examination is an ultra-widefield, which means that more of the retina can be seen at one time and its fast and the process is completed in a quarter of a second.
Nothing touches your eye at any time during the process and as no drops are needed you can resume normal activities immediately.
