For many, the eyes are one of the most important sensory organs to have. Good vision not only allows us to enjoy the beauty of the world, but it also allows us to live independently and efficiently. That’s why protecting their overall health is so important. So with that in mind, let us tell you a little bit about a product Michigan Eye Institute now carries called Optomap.
The inventor, Dr. Douglas Anderson, developed Optomap to help avoid routine eye exams which can be uncomfortable and redundant. Instead, he developed a patient-friendly retinal imaging product that encompassed a digital widefield image of the retina.
We recommend choosing Optomap as part of your next eye exam. Our Optomap product produces a high resolution image of your eye that helps your doctor ascertain your retina’s health. Not only does it create a quick snapshot about your eye’s health and potential diseases associated with it, but it also provides a permanent record for you and your doctor so that you can review changes each year.
Your eyes are a window into your health, so if you’re having vision troubles, it might be time to take a closer look at the root of the problem. Ask about it during your next visit! Optomap is available at all of our locations: Flint, Fenton, Lapeer, Grand Blanc, and Oxford. Schedule your appointment today.
