A detailed image of your eye enables our experienced optometrists to examine the health of your eyes accurately and easily. To do this, we use the very latest optical technology known as the Optomap Daytona.
Your eye is the only place in the body where it’s possible to look in from the outside and see blood vessels, arteries and even a cranial nerve. Using the Optomap we are able to ensure that your health, as well as vision, is in top condition.
The Optomap takes a detailed image of the inside of your eye, mapping a representation of up to 80% of the inside of your eye. The image can be easily stored, referred to, and compared for future use. This is a fantastic tool that helps us to give you exceptional eye care, simply because we are able to refer to past Optomap images and monitor your eyes’ development.
Traditional scans can only record about 15% of the retina at any one time
With optomap® scan
The optomap® shows 80% of a retina
The procedure is very quick and non-invasive. We don’t need to dilate your pupils either, so there is no need to worry about eye drops or sore eyes. With a push of a button, the machine generates a detailed image of your retina so that our experienced optometrist can analyse your health and vision strength. It helps us to spot anything that a standard eye examination may have missed.
We will be able to detect the early signs of eye conditions such as retinal tears and detachments, macular degeneration and glaucoma, and non-eye diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.
Once our optometrist has analysed the image of the inside of your eye, they will explain their findings to you, giving you the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.
