What's an Optomap?

An OptoMap isn't a traditional camera, but instead uses a low power green and red lasers to simultaneously scan your retina in less than a second. 

It's quick, painless and doesn't have the side effects that dilation drops have.  It's just like looking thru a peephole.   It allows your doctor to see retinal problems such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes and detachments, melanomas, cancer and diabetic retinopathy, without dilation for most patients.

We feel that the Optomap Retinal Exam is an essential part of your comprehensive eye exam and recommend it for all patients once per year.  The $39.00 co-pay for this procedure is generally a non-covered service unless being used to actively follow disease.
