The doctors at Professional Family Eyecare highly recommend an Optomap Retinal photo at every comprehensive eye exam. The Optomap is a high-resolution image that captures photos of the back of your eye known as the Retina without dilating drops. It allows your doctor to screen the health of your retina, optic nerve and aids in looking for signs of diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, nevus and macular degeneration are just a few. Your images are stored digitally in our data base so that your doctor can compare changes in your retina over time. The procedure is completely painless and can be done in a matter of seconds. Images appear immediately on the screen and the doctor will review with you.

An OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography scan) image helps your doctor by analyzing high-resolution, colored-coded, cross-sectional images of your retina. The important benefit of this state of the art instrument is that is allows your doctor to see both the back of your eye and a three-dimensional image to look beneath the surface of the retina. It provides information about the health of your retina, macula and nerve fiber layers surrounding the optic nerve to detect eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy.
We offer a special screening package for both tests, ask when scheduling your exam today!
