The Optomap Retinal Exam is a comprehensive way of examining the condition of one's eyes and overall health. It not only eliminates the need to dilate patients' eyes in most cases, but also detects and predicts disease — including eye disease, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and cancer. The Optomap technology takes an instant, 200° photographic scan of the eye, which allows us to visually show and explain what we observe to our patients.
The Optomap technology was invented by Douglas Anderson, whose son suffered permanent eye damage — including blindness in one eye — as a result of flawed eye exams. Striving to produce a better option for patients and doctors alike, Anderson introduced the Panoramic200 in 1999. This invention revolutionized eye care for patients, and now defines the Optomap Retinal Exam. We recommend that every person, regardless of age or current health status, receive yearly Optomap Retinal Exams.
