Optomap

For many eyecare patients, having pupils dilated (opened up) using eye drops can be a bother. But as an integral part of a truly comprehensive eye exam, those drops are highly recommended. Dilation gives your eye doctor the widest view of the internal structures at the back of the eye—the optic nerve, retina, even blood vessels.

That’s where Optomap technology comes in. Using low-power laser technology, your eyecare professional can take a wide, instantly-viewable and detailed digital scan of your retina (the area responsible for processing images). All in real time. And in no time. Without the use of pupil-dilating eye drops.

How does Optomap work?

It’s very similar to sitting down in a type of photo booth and leaning forward to have your picture taken. Except in this instance, the picture being taken is a larger, wide-field image of the inside of your eyeball. Optomap takes around a minute.

Since retina scanning is so important in the early detection of cataracts, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and more, it’s pretty easy to see why Optomap technology is so promising.

Optomap retinal exams are not available everywhere, however. And in some instances, these scans may not be covered by traditional insurance due to cuts in eye doctor reimbursements.

Check with your eyecare professional and ask if an Optomap eye exam is right for you.

The current situation with COVID-19 is changing on a daily basis. The CDC and the American Optometric Association have asked optometrists to postpone any routine eyecare visits for the next 2-3weeks. Due to this recommendation, we will be limiting our office hours to accommodate our patients who have emergencies and urgent eye care needs only. Our office plans to be open for two days/week for the next few weeks from 12-5pm and we hope to get back to our usual office hours as soon as possible. Currently, LensCrafters will be open from 12-6pm daily and will be available to help answer our calls and provide information as to which days we will be open as this is subject to change. If LensCrafters has to close for an extended period of time, we will have a cell phone number on our voicemail to reach our on-call doctor for emergencies.

Our priority during this uncharted time is the health and safety of our patients, staff and our community. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thank you very much for your understanding,

The team at Altitude Optometry
