Enhanced Eye Exam

We recommend having the Optomap Wide-angle retinal examination plus the new OCT scans.

A regular eye exam is important to check the health of the front of your eyes as well as any changes to your glasses or contact lens prescription. In addition a thorough screening of the retina (back of the eye) is also required to check that your eyes are healthy.

Some eye conditions (e.g. age related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears/holes) and other health concerns (e.g. diabetes, hypertension, risk of stroke) can be found in the retina.

Early detection is essential so that these can be successfully treated.

Traditional ways of looking at the retina only show a small part of the retina at one time. The optomap retinal exam shows nearly the whole retina at once. It is quick, painless and normally does not require dilation drops.

The optomap story: in 1990, 5 year old Leif Anderson went blind in one eye due to an undiagnosed retinal detachment. He was getting regular eye exams, but conventional tests available at the time made a thorough examination difficult.

Distressed by the diagnostic methods available, Leif's father, Douglas, designed the optomap.

OCT Optical Coherence Tomography.

 

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a type of eye exam that provides a very detailed, 3D scan of the structures lining the back of the eye.

The OCT emits safe light waves to create high definition pictures of the structural layers of the retina and beyond rather like a CT scan.

This allows us to give patients of all ages a highly advanced eye examination and aids the early detection and treatment of a wide range of eye conditions.
