OPTOMAP RETINAL EXAM

In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Livermore Optometry is proud to announce the inclusion of the Optomap Retinal Exam as an integral part of your eye exam. Our office was one of the first in Northern California to integrate this technology into our patient care instrumentation.

Your retina (located in the back of your eye) 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 (for example, 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. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy.



The OPTOMAP retinal exam

The optomap exam is fast, painless and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time (like looking through a keyhole) and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken.

Under normal circumstances, dilation drops might not be necessary, but your doctor at Livermore Optometry Group will decide if your pupils need to be dilated depending on your conditions. The capture takes less than a second. Images are available immediately for review. You can see your own retina. You see exactly what your doctor sees - even in a 3D animation.
