Our North York office is equipped with a high-resolution retinal imaging device called the Optomap Retinal Scan (or OPTOS for short), a modern advancement in eyecare technology. The OPTOS is able to take a detailed, wide-field photo of the back of the eye (retina). Normally, a standard dilated fundus exam or traditional fundus camera gives us only a 15-30% view of the retina at a time. However, with the panoramic image capture of the OPTOS, 80% of the retina is captured in just a mere second.
Together with the eye exam, the OPTOS allows the doctor to fully understand and much better diagnose, manage and treat diseases that may go undetected in the early stages, when patients may not even have symptoms (ie. diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and much more!).
