Optomap® Retinal Scan – the latest in retinal imaging technology

We are pleased to inform you that you now have the opportunity to experience the latest development in eye examinations - the optomap® Retinal Scan with Daytona. The optomap® Retinal Scan gives us the most extensive view of your retina (the back of the eye) technology permits. This examination helps us check the health of your retina and detect early signs of many conditions which, if left untreated, can affect your sight. In addition, the retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be
seen directly. This means that signs of some non eye diseases (eg stroke, heart disease and diabetes) can also be viewed. Early detection helps save sight and lives.

Daytona is the latest optomap retinal imaging device and provides more detailed, higher resolution images as well as a new autofluorescence (AF) mode. AF imaging gives us more information and helps us view changes in the retina and identify areas that may be at risk of certain eye diseases (eg Age-related Macular Degeneration).

The optomap® Retinal Scan is suitable for all ages – from children to adults. No pupil dilation is required and the exam can be taken even in the presence of cataracts. The procedure is very quick, simple and nothing touches your eye at anytime; the push of a button generates an electronic image of your retina, which we can then instantly examine to ensure the retina is normal and healthy. optomap® allows you to see what we see in a unique 3D sequence and the image will then be kept for comparison at your next visit.

We believe the optomap® Retinal Scan is one of the most significant advances in eye care we have ever seen and we recommend that all of our patients make this part of their regular eye examination.
