Westwood Eyecare and Optical brings new eyecare technology right to your neighborhood! With the addition of the Optomap Retinal Exam to our practice, we are pleased to offer the most advanced technology available to our patients.
An Optomap exam is a new type of eye wellness scan that gives Dr. Lavallee and Dr. Temple an in depth view of the retinal layers in back of your eye (where diseases can start). It is recommended for people in all age groups. This examination allows the doctor to check for Tumors or Growths, Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Retinal holes or detachment, Diabetes, Stroke or High Blood Pressure.
Any of these conditions can lead to serious health problems, including partial loss of vision or blindness, and often develop without warning.
The Optomap image is captured in less than a second and is immediately available to review with your doctor during your exam. The resulting data enhances our doctors' ability to manage your health by giving them the opportunity to diagnose potential problems before they become serious.
By adding the quick and easy Optomap to your annual eye exam, you can enjoy its many advantages including:
- A detailed view of the eye's retina
- The ability to manipulate, mark-up, and measure the digital image and it's components
- The ability to further understand your eye health
- Permanent digital images for future comparison
