FDT EXAMINATION

A new highly sophisticated computerized instrument now allows us to provide a more thorough medical analysis of your eyes. Our new Humphrey FDT screens for early visual field loss. This measurement can assist us in the early detection of many disorders including Glaucoma. 


We strongly recommend that all of our Patients receive the screening version of this exam. It is especially important for people who have:

  1. Glaucoma suspected
  2. Family history of Glaucoma
  3. Headaches
  4. Visual disturbanses
  5. See spots or flashes of light
  6. Strong eyeglass prescription
  7. Family history of high blood pressure
  8. Circulatory problems

OPTOS

We are excited to offer the option of OPTOS. Optos technologies noninvasively generate an instantaneous, ultra-widefield digital image of the retina revealing important information for the comprehensive evaluation of systemic and ocular health. The Optomap Retinal Exam is recommended as an integral first step in the clinical evaluation of every patient annually. In most cases Optomap will replace the dilated fundus exam. This test is optional at a cost of $25.00.

Common Questions:

Why is a retinal exam so important?

Some of the first signs of diseases such as stroke, diabetes and even some cancers can be seen in your retina, often before you have other symptoms.  An optomap makes it easier to see them.

Is an optomap safe for children?

Yes.  In fact, many vision problems begin in early childhood, so it's important for children to receive quality routine eye care.

What is an optomap?

The optomap is a panoramic digital image of the retina produced by Optos scanning laser technology.  It is the only technology that can show a wide 82% view of your retina at one time.

Does it hurt?

No.  It is completely comfortable and the scan takes less than a second.

How will optomap benefit me?

An optomap's wide view of the retina may help your eye doctor detect problems more quickly and easily.  Unlike traditional retinal exams, the optomap image can be saved for future comparisons.

How often should I have an optomap?

This is a decision that should be made by your doctor.  However, it is generally recommended that you have an optomap each time you have an eye exam.

Are there side effects?

optomap images are created by non-invasive, low-intensity scanning lasers.  No adverse effects have been reported in over 39 million sessions.
