Optomap Digital Imaging
Optomap is a non-dilated technology that uses a safe scanning laser tocreate an image of the inside of the eye. This technology allows us todocument the internal structures of the eye and detect over 100 differenteye diseases such as retinal detachments, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma,macular degeneration, and retinal changes due to high blood pressure andcholesterol.
Dr. Cole and Dr. Dodd strongly recommend images be taken each year onall patients, no matter the age, to monitor for any changes. Once theimage is taken, it will be reviewed with you by the doctor in the examinationroom.
Our doctors’ current opinions are that Optomap is not a completereplacement for dilating the pupils. However, during this time ofCOVID-19 and to decrease the risk of viral spread, the doctors preferthat patients utilize this option in lieu of dilation.

The procedure is quick and simple! It is not covered by most insurancecompanies, as they do not cover screenings. We offer the digital imagingfor $33 on the day of your examination.
Consent For Dilation *If recommended by doctor*
Many Diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, glaucoma and tumors of the eye, as well as tears and holes in the retina, can be detected with dilation. Dilation requires placing drops in the eyes to enlarge the pupil which allows a thorough examination of the inside of the eye for these and other problems. The side effects can be blurred vision and light sensitivity for about 2-4 hours. There is no additional charge for this procedure.
