At Dolphins Optometrists, we are dedicated to providing a professional and comprehensive service to our clients. From eye examinations and retinal imaging, to stylish sunglasses, we can provide an array of services for our clients.
One of our key services is retinal imaging. We utilise the latest technology, including the Optos, to provide in depth and clear images to help us assess your eye health.
What is Retinal Imaging?
The retina is the light sensitive layer of tissue at the back of the eye. It converts light into electrical impulses that are sent to the brain, where they are interpreted as images. Our retinas are very delicate and can be easily damaged.
Retinal imaging is a non-invasive test that takes pictures of the retina. This can be used to detect and monitor a number of retinal conditions such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinal detachment, and diabetic retinopathy. Retinal imaging is a painless. It’s a non-invasive test that allows us to take a detailed look at the retina. Therefore, it helps us to detect problems early, before they cause any symptoms.
Why is Retinal Imaging Important?
Retinal imaging is important because it can help us to:
- Detect retinal conditions early
- Monitor retinal conditions
- Plan treatment for retinal conditions
It is important to monitor your retinas and identify any damage as early as possible. Therefore, by mapping your retinas, we can detect retinal conditions early and plan appropriate treatment.
What is the Optos Optomap?
At Dolphins Optometrists, we are proud to use the Optos optomap as part of our retinal imaging service. The Optos optomap is a cutting-edge piece of technology, allowing us to take high-quality images of the retina. This helps us to provide you with the best possible care and treatment for your retinas.
The Optos Optomap machine is a cutting-edge piece of technology that allows us to take high quality images of the retina. It uses a special ultra-widefield camera, which takes pictures of a larger area. Therefore providing a larger, clearer image.
The Optos machine uses ultra-widefield (UWF) technology to take pictures of the retina. UWF retinal images provide up to 200 times more coverage than traditional retinal images. This allows us to see more of the retina, including the peripheral retina. This is often not possible with traditional retinal cameras.
How Does the Optos Optomap Work?
The Optos Optomap takes pictures of your retina using UWF retinal imaging. This is a painless, non-invasive test that only takes a few minutes. The Optos machine will take multiple pictures of your retina and these will be.
With traditional, small-field, and even widefield retinal imaging, only 10-100⁰ of the retina can be captured in a single image. However, the Optos optomap machine is the only retinal imaging machine that can capture a true, clinically validated, ultra-widefield image of up to 200⁰ of the retina in a single capture. Furthermore, With optomap auto-montage, up to 97% or 220⁰ of the retina can be imaged with the multi-capture, montaging functionality. Therefore, it isthe best possible machine for capturing retinal images. Hence, it supports us in providing you with the best possible care.
This is an incredible increase of 50% over the next closest imaging device, making it the most powerful retinal imaging machine on the market today.
Optos technology incorporates low-powered laser wavelengths that scan simultaneously. This allows review of the retinal substructures in their individual laser separations. This means that we can see more detail and get a more accurate picture of the retina. We believe that this is important for diagnosing and treating many retinal conditions as we can get a succinct and comprehensive image of our clients’ retinas.
Retinal Imaging at Dolphins Optometrists
At Dolphins Optometrists, we embrace technology when undertaking retinal imaging. This is epitomised by our utilisation of the Optos Optomap machines, which produce high-resolution, 80 megapixel images that can be stored in our patients’ files for future reference
Not only does this provide our patients with state-of-the-art retinal imaging, but it also allows us to pick up on retinal changes sooner. This means that we can provide you with the best possible care, and ensure that you maintain healthy vision for years to come.
How Technology Helps with Retinal Imaging
The Optos machine is just one example of how we utilise technology to improve our retinal imaging service. We also use advanced digital retinal cameras, which produce high-quality images that can be stored on our computer system and easily accessed by our team. These images are incredibly clear and detailed, providing us with a comprehensive view of the retina.
Digital retinal cameras also allow us to take multiple images in quick succession, which is extremely useful when trying to track retinal changes over time. This means that we can pick up on any problems early and provide you with the treatment and care that you need.
At Dolphins Optometrists, we are proud to offer our patients the very best in retinal imaging technology. This allows us to provide you with the highest level of care, and ensure that you maintain healthy vision for years to come.
Furthermore, by embracing technology at our practice, particularly when undertaking retinal imaging, it is now easier to work and communicate with other healthcare professionals about your eyesight, should you need to see a specialist. This only enhances the degree of care we can provide and thus ensure that our clients’ eye health is as strong possible.
