Dr. Horace Deal and Dr. Dylan Piette recommend an optomap as an integral part
of your eye exam. An optomap provides your doctor
with a view of approximately 82% of your retina in a single
capture and helps your doctor to evaluate your visual health.
Many eye problems can develop without warning and
progress with no symptoms. Early on you might not even
notice any change to your vision. However, diseases such
as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or
detachments, as well as other health problems such as
diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected with a
thorough exam of the retina.
An optomap retinal image provides:
• Information on the health of your eyes.
• An overview or map of the retina, giving your doctor
a more detailed view than can be achieved with other
• The opportunity for you to view and discuss the
optomap images with your doctor at the time of
• A permanent record for your medical file, enabling your
doctor to make important comparisons if potential
problems show themselves at a future examination.
Getting an optomap is fast, easy, and comfortable.
PLEASE NOTE: Your doctor strongly believes an optomap
is an essential part of your comprehensive eye exam.
However, most health plans do not cover optomap, which
means that you may be responsible for an additional fee of $35.
