The Latest in Optical Technology
Hollywood Eyes features the latest technology with our eye exams, such as fully integrated electronic records, computerized refraction, and automated visual field testing. We also offer Optomap retinal exams for evaluating the back of the eyes. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy.
This new technology can lead to the early detection of common diseases, such as glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, and even cancer. The exam is quick, painless, and may not require dilation drops.
What is an Optomap Image?
Getting an optomap image is fast, painless and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time (like looking through a keyhole) and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. Under normal circumstances, dilation drops might not be necessary, but your eye care practitioner will decide if your pupils need to be dilated depending on your conditions. The capture takes less than a second. Images are available immediately for review. You can see your own retina. You see exactly what your eye care practioner sees - even in a 3D animation.
Early signs of disease can be present in the periphery of your retina and remain undetected for a long time when using traditional methods.
The optomap ultra-widefield retinal image is a unique technology that captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image while traditional imaging methods typically only show 15% of your retina at one time.
Benefits of an Optomap
The benefits of having an Optomap ultra-wide field retinal image taken are:
Optomap facilitates early protection from vision impairment or blindness
Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.
Early detection of life-threatening diseases like cancer, stroke, and cardiovascular disease
The unique optomap ultra-widefield view helps your eye care practitioner detect early signs of retinal disease more effectively and efficiently than with traditional eye exams
