Optomap Retinal Exam
In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Amador Eyecare Associates is proud to announce the inclusion of the optomap Retinal Exam as an itegral part of your eye exam.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on, you might not even notice any change in your vision. However, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, as well as other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected with a thorough exam of the retina. The retina is the part of your eye that catches the image of what you are looking at, similar to the film in a camera.
An optomap Retinal Exam provides:
A scan to confirm a healthy eye or, to detect the presence of disease.
An overview or map of the retina, giving your doctor a more deailed view than can be achieved by other means.
The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap images of your eye with your doctor at the time of your exam.
A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your doctor to make important comparisions if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
PLEASE NOTE: The optomap Retinal Exam may be a "NON-COVERED SERVICE" with your health plan, meaning that you would be responsible for the charges at the time of your visit. Your doctor strongly believes the optomap Retinal Exam is an essential part of your comprehensive eye exam and highly recommends it for all patients once per year. Our fee for the optomap Retinal Exam is $30.00.
