OptoMap Retinal Exam (COVID-19)

As we are all dealing with the effects of Covid-19, we don’t know about the long-term effects this may have on the eyes. The Optomap is now required by the doctor because it is the safest way to check the health of your eyes at a safe distance.

This screening procedure can monitor for retinal complications including macular degeneration, glaucoma, and retinal holes or detachments. It will also detect problems unrelated to the eye that may show early signs in the retina such as hypertension, cancer/tumors, auto-immune disorders, and others.  

The Optomap® Retinal Exam:

  • Is as fast as taking a picture.
  • DOES NOT REQUIRE DILATING DROPS. You may not need to be dilated today, potentially eliminating a 30-minute wait and avoiding side effects such as blurry vision and light sensitivity.
  • Will be saved in your file enabling your optometrist to make important comparisons during your annual eye exam.

We are committed to providing you with safe and thorough care. Due to COVID-19 this technology is now our standard of care.  The copay for this procedure is $50.
