Heights Eye Center Now Offers Optomap Technology to Vision Patients for Enhanced Retinal Health Exams

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, N.J., Oct. 23, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Patients can have a thorough evaluation that can identify signs of serious eye diseases at earlier stages than with other methods, reports Heights Eye Center. An appointment with a Hasbrouck Heights optometrist provides patients with the benefit of improved eye disease diagnosis and management for conditions including glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. Optomap technology provides eye doctors and vision patients with enhanced diagnostic capabilities, and is performed without the need for pupil dilation. Heights Eye Center combines quality eye care with the latest technology for exceptional vision services and treatment.

Optomap retinal exams provide patients with enhanced accuracy in the early detection of eye diseases and health issues. An optomap image can provide data that goes beyond commonly diagnosed vision conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration. An optomap retinal exam provides eye doctors with detailed imaging that can show early signs of those at risk of hypertension, heart disease, stroke and diabetes. The exam using an optomap retinal scanner is comfortable, quick and painless. A patient peers into the optomap space a single eye at a time and a flash of light indicates when the image is captured. Images are available for immediate review.

Traditional exams show very little of the actual retina, with eye doctors only seeing 15 percent of the retina in a single image. Optomap retinal scanning provides significantly more information to eye doctors and patients, capturing over 80 percent of the retina in one image. This data can detect signs of eye conditions sooner, which may prevent permanent vision impairment or blindness. Both children and adults can benefit from an optomap retinal exam.

“Optomap technology is a safe and effective tool to evaluate patient eye health and give important information on serious eye and health conditions,” said Dr. James Aversa. “As an experienced optometrist, I can share that optomap technology has allowed us improved capabilities of eye disease detection and eye health maintenance. This advanced scanning laser technology allows optometrists to examine the retina and capture a wide field digital image of eye structures and conditions. Optomap can be used safely and without discomfort on children and adults providing more information about a patient’s eye health. Early diagnosis helps patients and doctors work towards improved outcomes.”
