Ultra-widefield Retinal Imaging
The optomap ultra-widefield retinal image is a unique technology that captures more than 80% of your retina in a single image while traditional imaging methods typically only show 15% of your retina at one time.
Getting an optomap image is fast, painless and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. This revolutionary optomap ultra-widefield retinal image is the brainchild of Douglas Anderson, founder of Optos, whose son lost sight in one eye at the age of five due to an undetected retinal detachment. After this tragedy, Mr. Anderson set out to develop a system that not only could capture an unprecedented view of the retina (200 degrees), but that was also patient-friendly, particularly for children, who tend to be more difficult to examine.
This unique optomap view helps us detect early signs of retinal disease such as:
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Age Related Macular Degeneration
- Retinal detachment/tear
