When you commit to daily sun-safe practices, you reduce risks of vision loss. Since many eye issues begin without symptoms, comprehensive eye exams are vital to early detection and diagnoses of eye conditions and diseases. Like a beach hat’s brim, bigger is better and an optomap® image shows 82% or 200 degrees of the retina in one capture and it is taken in less than a second. If there are findings, the images can easily and immediately be shared with specialists for further review. Many eye disorders can be fixed, slowed and/or reversed but the earlier the detection often relates to the better the outcome.
