What happens during the optomap imaging part of my exam?

During this portion of your exam, you will be asked to look into the medical device, where you will see a colored target. Once the target is optimal a flash will occur and an image will be immediately produced and saved as part of your patient file. This will be referred back to upon your next visit to assess for changes.

Choosing to receive the optomap imaging during your regular exam allows your optometrist to assess your eyes with a great deal of depth. Additionally, having the ability to compare changes over time can significantly help in diagnosing eyes issues/diseases sooner than later.
