The Optomap Retinal Exam

The Optomap Retinal Exam is a non-dilating camera that captures a digital image of the retina. The Optomap allows the doctor to capture a 200° high-resolution image of the retina in a single shot– without dilation — in a quarter of a second. It’s easy for the patient, takes just a few minutes to perform, and is immediately available for review with the patient in the exam room.download

Dilation, the traditional method, requires eye drops that enlarge the pupil area and blurs vision for approximately 4 to 6 hours. The drops require 30 minutes to take affect and then another 10 to 15 minutes of evaluation with a bright light source and a magnifying lens. The resulting clinical evaluation is similar to the Optomap, if the clinician is experienced, patient is cooperative and pupil dilation is maximized. A comprehensive dilation is achieved through 8 to 10 individual inverted views of each retina that is documented on the exam form.
