In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to you, we offer the Optomap Retinal Exam as an alternative to dilation.

Many eye problems can develop without warning and progress with no symptoms. Early on, you might not 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, high blood pressure, certain cancers and high cholesterol can often 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 detect the presence of disease.
  • An overview or map of the retina, providing a larger and more detailed view of the retina.
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss the Optomap images of your eye with Dr. Cowan at the time of your exam.
  • A permanent record for your medical file, enabling Dr. Cowan to make important comparisons if potential problems show themselves at a future examination.
