Love your Eyes with Optos, World Sight Day

Posted on Oct 13, 2022 by

Globally, Optos devices with optomap ultra-widefield retinal imaging technology are assisting eye care professionals to offer the most comprehensive eye exams possible. Early detection of any retinal abnormality is crucial to maintaining ocular and systemic health because in most cases of eye disease, in the early stages, they exhibit minimal to no signs or symptoms. Diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina, which includes the use of optomap.

Celebrating 30 Years of Optos!

Posted on Sep 27, 2022 by

Over thirty years ago, a five-year-old boy lost his vision after a regular eye exam failed to spot a retinal detachment. 

His father, Douglas Anderson, made it his mission to revolutionize retinal imaging for eye care professionals. And in 1992 when Optos was founded, his goal was met with the availability of a patient-friendly device that can capture an ultra-widefield (UWF™) high-resolution retinal image. And today, these devices are still the only devices that, in a single-capture, image approximately 82% or 200 of the retina.

Children's Eye Exams: When and Why?

Posted on Aug 26, 2022 by

It's important for parents to understand the importance of eye exams, and the utilization of the highest-level technology in pediatric screening.  Optos ultra-widefield (UWF™) imaging technology is making great strides in diagnosing and treating eye problems in children and infants. Due to the cutting-edge modalities and ease-of-operation with an optomap® exam, signs of retinal disease can be found in the periphery, often before children and infants become symptomatic.

Why a Comprehensive Eye Exam Should be First on your Back to School List

Posted on Jul 31, 2022 by

An optomap image captures up to 200°, or 82% of the retina in one fast, painless image, with little or no face-to-face interaction. The image is highly detailed and allows the eye care professional the best view for identifying diseases and other issues that may arise in your child’s eyes. Set your child up for success this school year by scheduling a comprehensive eye exam with optomap!

Can my Optos Device diagnose Retinal Detachments?

Posted on Jul 15, 2022 by

Over the past thirty years, Optos ultra-widefield retinal imaging technology has been used to image hundreds of millions of individuals in order to assist in the detection of retinal detachment, and other vision and life-threatening diseases. One of the most recent cases that was presented to highlight the technology was of outer retinal folds in a Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment, provided by Steven M. Bloom, MD of Bennett & Bloom Eye Centers.

Get Those Lids and Lashes out of optomap Images!

Posted on Jul 12, 2022 by

Those beautiful lashes and bright eyes may have aesthetic appeal, but lashes and eyelids may obscure areas of interest within an optomap® image. Fortunately, patient lid and lash taping techniques can help eyecare professionals obtain unobstructed images for more effective analysis of their ultra-widefield (UWF™) retinal images.
