Retinal Exam (with photos)

The Optos camera is one of the best ways for you to get a fast and thorough check up on the health of the eye. Your eye exam will consist of several parts. In addition to checking if you need glasses, y our eye doctor looks at the overall health of you eye. Traditionally eye doctors would use devices to let them get close and actually look in to your eye. But then someone had a great idea! What if we could take a photo of the back of your eye using a camera?

By taking a photo, your optometrist is able to get a better look at the back of your eye. And it’s pretty common for most optometrists to be able to do this now days. But photos (although better than the old way) only give an eye doctor a view of a small portion of your eye.

The difference with OPTOS

BUT, when you use an Optos camera, you get a much larger view of the health of your eye. This can help you and your eye doctor catch early stages of major problems. Problems like diabetic changes  and retinal detachments. The Optos camera, especially when combined with dilation gives you one of the most thorough exams you can find.
