A detailed image of your eye enables our experienced optometrists to examine the health of your eyes accurately and easily. To do this, we use the very latest optical technology available – the Optomap Daytona.
Your eyes are the only place in the body where it’s possible to look in from the outside and see blood vessels, arteries and even a cranial nerve. By using the Optomap, we are able to ensure that your health as well as your vision, is in top condition.
The Optomap takes a detailed image, mapping a representation of up to 80% of the inside of your eye. The image can be easily stored, referred to, and compared for future use. This is a fantastic tool that helps us to provide you exceptional eye care, and monitor your eyes’ development by referring to previous Optomap images.
The procedure is very quick and non-invasive. We don’t need to dilate your pupils either, so there is no need to worry about eye-drops or sore eyes. With a push of a button, the machine generates a detailed image of your retina so that our optometrist can analyse your health and vision strength. It helps us to spot anything that may have been missed in a standard eye examination.
We will be able to detect the early signs of eye conditions such as retinal tears and detachments, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and non-eye diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.
Once our optometrist has analysed the image of the inside of your eye, they will explain their findings to you, giving you the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. If you like, we can give you a printed copy of your eye or send the image to your email address.
