We are excited to announce the latest milestone in the history of Optos – 40 million optomap exams and counting! That’s over 80 million eyes around the world that have been examined since our innovative optomap ultra-widefield imaging technology was introduced in 2000.
The optomap exam offers patients a fast and painless exam that gives you a clear picture of what’s going on beyond the surface of their eyes. In addition to determining eye health, optomap ultra-widefield retinal imaging has provided practitioners around the world with the capability to identify various eye conditions and diseases, as well as indications of systemic diseases by providing an ultra-wide 82% view of the retina.
In many cases, systemic conditions and diseases were detected early enough that the patient’s vision wasn’t severely affected. And in one case, the optomap was not only credited for saving the patient’s vision, but also her life and the life of her baby.
In addition to providing you with the ability to detect conditions and diseases in the retina sooner, our optomap technology offers unique features that will benefit you, your patients, and your practice. For example, patients who receive an optomap exam are able to review the images captured through the exam with their practitioner, which helps them better understand eye health and any existing eye conditions. And as the images are stored electronically they are easily accessible for you to come back to later for comparison with follow-up exam images.
Practitioners interested in learning more about bringing the benefits of the optomap to their practice may contact us for more information.
