The Optomap® Retinal Exam
Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. Our doctors recommend the optomap® as an important part of our comprehensive eye exams. The optomap produces an image that is unique and provides our Dr. Karri Buresh and Dr. Kaeleen Franson with a high-resolution 200° image in order to ascertain the health of your retina. This is much wider than a traditional 45° image. Many eye problems can develop without you knowing, in fact, you may not even notice any change in your sight – fortunately, diseases or damage such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.

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. We are thrilled to be able to offer our patients this advanced technology with each yearly exam. Call us if you have further questions about the optomap.
