Making routine eye exams a part of a yearly, preventative routine aid in the strides to prevent illness rather than treat it as it appears, but for many it is still not the norm.  Many adults with 20/20 vision and no eye-related symptoms will often forgo an annual eye exam, while many ocular diseases are asymptomatic in early stages.  Early detection of these diseases can have a significant impact on courses of treatment and the probability of positive outcomes.

Eyecare professionals can greatly enhance their comprehensive exams with the use of ultra-widefield (UWF™) optomap technology.  optomap is specifically designed to provide an UWF image of the retina, and it is, by definition, the only UWF technology that captures more than 80% of the retina in a single image and in less than ½ second.  Find an eye care professional who uses optomap, today!

Optos Recognizes World Glaucoma Week

Posted on Mar 11, 2022 by

Glaucoma is a common eye disease that can lead to blindness, especially if not detected early and treated. In the US, about 3 million people currently have glaucoma. Like many ocular pathologies, the prevalence of glaucoma increases with age, and it is more common in people of African American descent. About 3% of the population over 50 have glaucoma and that increases to 5% for those over the age of 60 and 8% for those over the age of 70. Glaucoma causes loss of vision in the periphery and is usually not noticed by the person experiencing it because their central vision is unaffected and they can still read, write, drive, and watch TV normally, until the end of the disease right before complete blindness. Early detection is very important to stop the progress of the disease. This can only be done through eye examinations which often includes imaging with Optos devices
