Mauer Eye Center is the first eyecare practice in the Cedar Valley to offer its patients the Optomap retinal exam (Optos® North America). This revolutionary modality captures and analyzes an image of virtually the entire retina, for the early detection and management of eye disease. Since Optos first introduced the Optomap exam, nearly one million exams have been conducted worldwide, diagnosing serious eye conditions - such as diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachments and macular degeneration - that could have otherwise gone undetected and often progress without symptoms.
The Optomap retinal exam takes a computer-generated image of the retina, which can be immediately evaluated by the doctors at Mauer Eye Center. There is no pupil dilation, no eye drops, blurred vision or sensitivity to light. The Optomap retinal exam is a simple, quick and important way to maintain good eye health.
Due to its clinical, patient and practice benefits, the Optomap retinal exam has the potential to become part of the standard of care in practices throughout the world. In addition to its many clinical and patient benefits, the Optomap also allows doctors to spend more time with patients, and provides a permanent photo-documentation that can be sent to a patient's primary care physician or specialist if needed and can also be used to educate patients.
