Further reinforcing their clinical and technological reputation, Black and Lizars now offers optomap® retinal imaging at ten of their UK practices. They believe that with their investment in Optos’ revolutionary ultra-widefield (UWF™) technology, they can now diagnose conditions earlier and provide better outcomes for their patients. Black and Lizars have the largest network of optomap UWF technology in the UK.
optomap provides eyecare professionals with a digital, high-definition image of more than 80 percent of the retina, in a single capture, and without dilation as compared to standard retinal imaging only captures between 10-60 percent of the retina. The clinicians at Black and Lizars also appreciate the ability to utilize autofluorescence images which can highlight retinal pathology that may not be found by other forms of retinal imaging. The ability to diagnose and monitor disease with such fine detail has been truly revolutionary for their practices.
The optomap is being offered by Black and Lizars as part of their “Enhanced Eye Exam”. Black and Lizars feels that this type of exam, which goes above the standard NHS exam, will allow for earlier diagnosis of AMD, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and other vision-threatening disease while improving the bottom line for the ten clinics.
