Optomap Retinal Exam

In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients, Northwest Vision Clinic utilizes the Optomap retinal exam as an integral part of your eye exam.

Your doctor is concerned about retinal problems including macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes or detachments, and systemic diseases such as diabetes, stroke, and high blood pressure.  These conditions can lead to serious health problems, including partial loss of vision or blindness, an often develop without warning and progress with no symptoms.

An Optomap exam provides:

  • An eye wellness scan.
  • An in depth view of the retinal layers (where disease can start).
  • The ability for you to view your Optomap retinal image with your Doctor during your exam.
  • An annual, permanent record for your medical file, which gives your Doctor comparisons for tracking and diagnosing potential eye disease.

The Optomap exam is fast, easy, and comfortable.  In some cases, the Optomap can be used in lieu of dilation to check your eye health.

Insurance typically does not cover any advanced screening technology beyond the general eye exam.  Your Doctor highly recommends the Optomap retinal exam for all patients.  We will be performing the Optomap Retinal Exam as an enhancement to the general eye exam for a fee of $39.00.
