Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. Cosmopolitan Optometry offers the
optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of our eye exams. The optomap® Retinal Exam produces
an image that is as unique as you fingerprint and provides your eye doctor with a wide view to look at
the health of your retina. The retina is the part of your eye that captures the image of what you are looking
at, similar to film in a camera.
Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight.
But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health
problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
An optomap® Retinal Exam provides:
- A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease.
- A view of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed view than he/she can get by other means.
- The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap® image of your eye with your doctor at
the time of your exam.
- A permanent record for your file, which allows [Doctor Name(s)] to view your images each year to
look for changes.
The optomap® Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. To have the exam, you simply
look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the
image of your retina has been taken. The optomap® image is shown immediately on a computer screen
so we can review it with you.
