Eyecare is excited to introduce a new technology, called the Optomap Retinal Scan. The screening can be done without dilating drops and will help evaluate the overall health of your retina and detect eye diseases such as Diabetes, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and even Cancer.
It will also identify a presence of any retinal lesions, such as holes, tears or detachments, which can present without any signs or symptoms and can cause permanent vision loss.
Our doctors strongly believe that the Optomap® Retinal Scan is an essential part of your comprehensive eye exam and plan to prescribe it for all patients once per year, as part of your wellness check for eye diseases that, when detected early, can be more effectively treated.
Although the screening is a non-covered service, the nominal fee charged is outweighed by the comfort of knowing your vision is protected. It is important to note that if any disease is present, the scan will become medically indicated and filed with your insurance. You may elect not to have the scan and your exam will proceed with normal dilation.
