Optomap® Ultra-Wide Digital Retinal Imaging


The Benefits of Optomap® Ultra-wide Digital Retinal Imaging

In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Dr Fishel & Associates offers the Optomap® Digital Retinal Imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Fishel highly recommends that you have these images taken. Depending on the results, the doctor will determine whether or not you need to be dilated.

Our staff will discuss the importance of the Optomap® Digital Retinal Imaging with you during the examination procedure. The procedure is fast, easy and comfortable.

Even if you see clearly now, it doesn’t mean your eyes are healthy or that they won’t change. That’s why it’s so important that you choose to have your retinal health documented today.

A thorough screening of your retina, or the back of your eye, is critical to verify that your eye is healthy. This can lead to detecting early warning signs of common diseases such as:

  • Glaucoma
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Retinal Tears
  • Even some types of cancer

An Optomap® provides

  • A scan to confirm a healthy eye or detect the presence of disease early.
  • A map of the retina, giving your doctor a more detailed and wider view than can be achieved by other means.
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss the Optomap® images of your eye with your doctor.
  • A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your doctor to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future exam.
