Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. Cockrell Eyecare offers the optomap® Retinal Exam as an important part of your overall eye exams. The optomap® Retinal Exam produces an image that is as unique as your fingerprint and which provides your doctors 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 how film works in a camera.
Some of the first signs of diseases such as macular degeneration, retinal tears or detachments, stroke, diabetes and even some cancers can be seen in your retina, often before you have other symptoms. An optomap makes it easier to see them.
An optomap® Retinal Exam provides:
- A scan to show a healthy eye or to 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 our doctors to view your images each year to look for changes.
The optomap® Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. Your optomap® image will be reviewed with you by your doctor.
