Pine Eye Associates recommends optomap retinal imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam.

We are thrilled to provide optomap to our patients in Pine Eye Associates! By adding optomap to your comprehensive eye exam, you are facilitating better eye health for you and your loved ones.

What is optomap Retinal Imaging?

Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina. Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy. Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.

Getting an optomap image is fast, painless, and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time (like looking through a keyhole) and you will see a flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The image capture takes less than half a second and you can view it with your eye care provider.

optomap is a cutting-edge retinal imaging technology that provides a 200-degree view of the retina and unlike traditional eye exams, where your doctor can only view a small portion of the retina at a time, this larger, single-capture view enables your eye care professional to detect, diagnose, and treat eye conditions and diseases at the earliest stages.

optomap imaging technology is setting a new standard for preventive eye health measures.

Early Detection of Eye Conditions

With its expansive view, optomap imaging can identify signs of eye diseases such as nevi “eye freckles”, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration more easily.

Part of your Medical Health Record

Unlike traditional retinal exams, optomap can be saved to your medical record for future comparisons.

Protection even with no visual complaints

Recent studies have shown that doctors who use optomap imaging, are seeing retinal pathology 97% of the time in patients who have no vision complaints.


4 Reasons to Add optomap to Your Comprehensive Eye Exam

  • Comprehensive Health Insights

    Beyond eye health, this type of imaging can reveal indicators of systemic diseases, including potential risks for stroke and cardiovascular disease, offering a window into your overall well-being.

  • Efficiency and Comfort

    The eye exam is quick, painless, and comfortable for patients of all ages. optomap is complementary to dilation, and your eye care provider will determine if you require both.

  • A Foundation for Preventative Care

    The optomap retinal imaging device is crucial in preventative health care by facilitating early detection of both ocular and systemic conditions. Helping to safeguard not just your vision but your overall eye health.

  • A Key Component of Comprehensive Eye Care

    Incorporating the optomap device into our practice is part of our commitment to providing our patients with the highest standard of eye care. This technology complements our range of services, from routine eye exams to more in-depth care, ensuring you receive a thorough and accurate eye health assessment.

Getting your eyes checked regularly is important for maintaining good eye health. optomap imaging can help detect potential eye problems early on and give you a more informed understanding of your eye health. So, whether you're experiencing symptoms or just due for your regular eye checkup, make an appointment for the optomap eye exam.

Been going here since I was 6 years old. Staff and doctors are great! I'll continue to go out of the... way to make sure I go see them. Always trusted them 100% to take care of my eyes.

I am so grateful for the team at Pine Eye. I went in for a routine checkup knowing that my eyes had ... changed since the last visit. Dr. T. was honest with her genuine concern over the significant changes that had taken place and validated the feelings I had about my much my vision had been affected. I’ve got my new glasses and can see quite nicely.

Dr. Garafalo is very talented, very thorough, and totally engaged in a great outcome or solution for... his patients. We are so glad we were referred to him by a friend. We highly recommend him as well.

Very thorough and were able to allay my fears

I’ve been to numerous optometrists in the past 4-5 years & always left with a new rx but still not... being able to see clearly. I always felt like I was crazy and just expecting to see “perfect” and that it was no longer an option after age 35 🤣. Dr Benedict took the time to figure out why I was having so much trouble with my overall vision for YEARS. He did some extra testing in my exam and found the problem. It literally changed my life! I also no longer feel like a hypochondriac 🤣

I take a 45 minute drive to Pine Eye instead of going to the local doctor in town. I'm a very indeci... sive person and I was struggling with frame's. The more the looked the more uncomfortable I started to feel. After staff noticing they helped narrow down choices and boosted my confidence on the best frame's for me. It was wonderful! Plus I'm very forgetful and always running late.. I get multiple reminders through emails and phone calls, which is greatly appreciated!
