As part of our commitment to offering you the highest standard of eye care, our practices at Oadby and Wigston are amongst the first opticians in the area to offer patients the optomap® Retinal Scan.
The optomap® Retinal Scan allows us to quickly and easily examine the back of your eyes (the retina) without any pupil dilation or anything touching your eyes. The optomap® Retinal Scan also gives us access to areas of the retina which are difficult to view with conventional equipment.
In less than 0.25 seconds we can virtually see the entire retina displayed on a screen. The digital image will then be stored on file allowing us to compare and monitor your retina each time you visit us for a scan.
A regular retinal exam is important to check the health of your retina. Any eye conditions such as Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) and Retinal Tears/ Detachments can be detected early so that successful treatments can be given.
In addition, signs of other diseases that affect not just your eyes can also be detected (eg heart disease, diabetes, hypertension).
We believe that optomap® Retinal Exam is one of the most significant advances in eye screening technology and would really recommend our patients having it done. The optomap® Retinal Exam is suitable for children and adults of all ages. To book your appointment, get in touch with us today.
