We are thrilled to provide optomap to our patients in EyeTX - Vineyard-Blanco! 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.

optomap imaging technology is setting a new standard for preventive eye health measures.

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.

I have been a patient of Dr Marlan Anderson for over 25 years and I followed him to his current loca... tion on Blanco. He is top notch and worth following all these years. I also have very high regards for his office manager, Laura who is very competent and extremely customer oriented. She resolved the issue I was having with my glasses and corrected the problem immediately! I will go to her in the future to get my glasses! What an asset these two are for their company! They both are the best! Sincerely Carol Guerrero
