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 ocular pathology, signs of other systemic conditions can be seen in the retina. Certain conditions, in their early stages, can appear in 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 is quick, efficient, and painless. In some instances, the optomap can be performed instead of a dilated exam, but that is up to your eye care practitioner. Early detection is essential to reduce the risk to your sight and health.
