ABBA Eye Care - Woodmen recommends optomap retinal imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam.

We are thrilled to provide optomap to our patients in ABBA Eye Care - Woodmen! By adding optomap to your comprehensive eye exam, you are facilitating better eye health for you and your loved ones.

What is optomap Retinal Imaging?

Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina. Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain. 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. Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.

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 flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The image capture takes less than half a second and you can view it with your eye care provider.

optomap is a cutting-edge retinal imaging technology that provides a 200-degree view of the retina and unlike traditional eye exams, where your doctor can only view a small portion of the retina at a time, this larger, single-capture view enables your eye care professional to detect, diagnose, and treat eye conditions and diseases at the earliest stages.

Early Detection of Eye Conditions

With its expansive view, optomap imaging can identify signs of eye diseases such as nevi “eye freckles”, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration more easily.

Part of your Medical Health Record

Unlike traditional retinal exams, optomap can be saved to your medical record for future comparisons.

Protection even with no visual complaints

Recent studies have shown that doctors who use optomap imaging, are seeing retinal pathology 97% of the time in patients who have no vision complaints.


4 Reasons to Add optomap to Your Comprehensive Eye Exam

  • Efficiency and Comfort

    The eye exam is quick, painless, and comfortable for patients of all ages. optomap is complementary to dilation, and your eye care provider will determine if you require both.

  • A Foundation for Preventative Care

So, whether you're experiencing symptoms or just due for your regular eye checkup, make an appointment for the optomap eye exam.

This place is great, it was quick, everyone was friendly, and I had my concerns fully addressed.

They are extremely thorough with the health and caring for your eyes. They don't rush you and answer... any questions you need answered. They are a busy office for a good reason. Glasses are more expensive than other options in town, but I think it's worth every penny to get updated care. I'll continue going here as long as they take my Tricare insurance.

Dr. Garwood is a total pro, but can let down and connect about matters other than the shape of your ... eyeball. Thomas took the baton pass from her and got me into a nice pair of Tom Ford's. Our time together wasn't just transactional, but interactional. It all felt nicely human, start to finish.
