Your retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases, like stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes can also be seen in the retina. Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain.
Benefits of an Optomap Image
The benefits of having an optomap ultra-widefield retinal image taken are:
- Optomap facilitates early protection from vision impairment or blindness
- Early detection of life-threatening diseases like cancer, stroke, and cardiovascular disease
- The unique optomap ultra-widefield view helps your eye care practitioner detect early signs of retinal disease more effectively and efficiently than with traditional eye exams.
- Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.
