Optos® Retinal Exams
Optos® Retinal Imaging System
At Crescent Eye Care in Charleston, we use the most innovative technology and state-of-the-art equipment for all our eye and vision exams. The Optos® ultra-widefield retinal scan system has completely transformed optometry, providing eye doctors with a wider picture of your retina and the blood vessels located at the back of the retina. As a result, your optometrist can gain access to a wealth of eye and general health information through a single optomap digital image.
Why Is an Optomap Retina Scan So Important?
Early detection is essential for effectively diagnosing and treating different eye health, vision, and general health conditions. The Optos retinal imaging system is exceptional because the retina is the only place where blood vessels can be scanned and viewed directly. This allows your optometrist to detect, diagnose, and treat various eye conditions such as:
- Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Retinal Detachment
- Helps Prevent Visual Impairments and Blindness
An Optos scan also helps your eye doctor identify the signs of life-threatening health conditions early on, such as:
- Heart Disease
- Cardiovascular Illnesses
- Some Types of Cancer
- And more
Let’s explore this cutting-edge technology.
What Is an Optomap Retina Scan?
The Optos digital imaging system scans the majority of the retina using cutting-edge, low-intensity laser technology, effectively capturing 82% of the retina in a single image. The procedure is completely painless and is completed in just a few minutes. It is a highly effective alternative to the traditional eye and vision tests. Your eye doctor uses the image of your retina to evaluate the health of your eye, identify signs of general health concerns, and determine treatment or vision correction for various eye conditions.
