What is Optomap Imaging?
The Optos Daytona uses two lasers to scan the retina and the underlying choroid right out to an unbelievable 200°. This enables our optometrists to document and monitor ocular pathology outside the view of a standard digital retinal camera.
Optos imaging usually does not require any drops and is suitable for both children and adults.
Why is it better?
For many years Hansen Eyecare Plus has taken standard digital retinal imaging of our patients to monitor for diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma and other retinal disorders. One problem with this technology is that standard digital retinal imaging can only capture the central 40° of the retina.
It is vital to detect and moniter peripheral eye conditions such as retinal tears and detachments, haemorrhages due to diabetic retinopathy and genetic disorders such as retinitis pigmentosa. The Optos Daytona enables the early detection and intervention of these eye conditions, which is essential in preventing vision loss.
