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.

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.

How to Grow your Optometry Practice

Posted on Jun 13, 2022 by

Growth is important for any company or business. For Optometrists, this is no different. It's important to reflect on what works, what doesn’t, and why. As optometry and eye care have evolved, the use of new technologies has become integral to optometric care. 

optomap UWF retinal images of 200 degrees or up to 82% of the retina in a single capture, provide that ‘wow’ factor for patients. optomap has helped to streamline examination protocol, as images can be captured during preliminary evaluation and are ready for review during the examination with the doctor. 

In a recent paper, five experts in the field take the time to discuss the most valuable technology investment in their optometry practice, optomap, and the competitive edge it provides.

A comprehensive eye exam should include a thorough examination of the retina, including an optomap, which is complementary to a DFE and an excellent tool for screening and for patient education. A optomap helps doctors to discover and document the retina with little or no face-to-face interaction and takes only seconds to get a highly-detailed view of the retina, which is critical for detection and management of both ocular and systemic diseases.

Tips to Reduce Digital Eye Strain in the Workplace

Posted on Mar 30, 2022 by

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!
