Retinal Imaging

Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. Krueger Optometry requires the optomap® as part of our eye exams. The optomap produces an image that is unique and provides us with a high-resolution 200° image in order to evaluate the health of your retina. This is much wider than a traditional 45° fundus image.

Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. In fact, you may not even notice any change in your sight since the inside of the eye does not have pain receptors. Fortunately, diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma can be diagnosed by comparing retinal images over time. Other eye problems, such as retinal tears or detachments, can be diagnosed with a peripheral view of the retina. Even systemic diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.

The inclusion of optomap as part of a comprehensive eye exam provides:

  • A scan to confirm a healthy eye or detect disease.

  • A wide view of the retinal periphery, giving us a more comprehensive view than we can get by other means.

  • The opportunity for you to review the images with your eye doctor at the time of your exam.

  • A permanent record for your file, which allows Krueger Optometry to view your images each year to look for changes.

The optomap is fast, easy, and comfortable for anyone. The entire image process consists of you looking into the device one eye at a time. The optomap images are shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you.

If you aren't seeing at least 200 degrees of the retina, you aren't getting the full picture. click here to watch video.

Under most circumstances, performing optomap imaging is sufficient for a peripheral health check instead of dilation. However, if we are unable to obtain quality images or if something concerning is found during imaging, the doctors may dilate in addition to imaging. Some health conditions, like diabetic retinopathy, necessitate dilation in addition to imaging under most circumstances.

 

If you want to dilate in addition to imaging, please contact us in advance of your appointment.
