Digital Retinal Imaging (Daytona Optomap)
Digital Retinal Imaging allows us to evaluate the overall health of the back of your eye. It is critical to confirm the health of the retina, which includes the evaluation of the macula and optic nerve. The optomap provides a high-resolution digital picture of your retina without the use of dilating drops! It gives us the ability to see the central and peripheral parts of the retina to allow us to detect diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, tumors, retinal detachments, glaucoma, and other less common conditions. We can then store the images and compare them from year to year to detect changes over time.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in retinal imaging technology. This diagnostic device achieves an incredible detail of all the layers of the retina below the surface so that we can see exactly where a retinal problem is occurring, even if we cannot see it when we look in the back of the eyes. The scan is used to analyze the layers of the retina and optic nerve for any signs of eye disease and for monitoring known diseases. It works using light without radiation, and is essential for early diagnosis and management of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinal disease.
An OCT scan is a non-invasive, painless test. It is performed in about 10 minutes in our office.
