Introducing the Optomap Retinal Examination

The doctors at Bogey Hills are pleased to introduce a new effective way of evaluating the health of the inside of the eye and the retina. We have been using the Daytona Optomap system in our office for the past few months and are amazed by the images that we are getting! The ‘window’ to look inside of the eye is the pupil, but light shrinks the pupil and inhibits a view of the outer part of the retina. The only option in the past has been to put drops in the eyes to dilate them, a process that causes light sensitivity and blurred vision for several hours. The optomap uses a curved mirror and red-green laser system that in a matter of seconds produces a wide angle image of the inside of the eye that will permanently stay in the patient’s record for future reference.

Check out this image of my own eye taken without any dilation drops. Pretty incredible isn’t it?

We believe in this technology so much that we are now recommending that all our patients have it done at their yearly eye examinations, so watch for it at your next visit!
