At Rivertown Eye Care, we offer the latest in retinal imaging technology with the Optos Optomap Retinal Imaging System.
The Optos® Optomap uses laser technology to allow our optometrists to see extremely detailed images of your eyes and reveal issues that may go otherwise unseen. It's fast, painless, and safe for the whole family! It is the only technology that can capture 82% view of your retina at one time.
Retinal imaging enables us to detect eye diseases in their early stages before any symptoms occur, making it easier to manage and treat them.
The Optomap technology provides us with a wider view of your retina (82% vs 15%), allowing us to capture a more comprehensive image of your eye health.
It is safe and recommended as part of early childhood eye examinations. In over 150 million scans there have been no reported adverse reactions.
Safe for All Ages
Unlike traditional retinal imaging techniques, the Optomap Retinal Imaging System does not require dilation of the pupils, making the process more comfortable for our patients.

What is Retinal Imaging?
Retinal imaging is a non-invasive diagnostic technique used to capture detailed images of the retina, the light-sensitive layer of tissue at the back of the eye. This imaging technology enables us to examine the retina for signs of eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
The Retinal Imaging Experience.
QUICK | PAINLESS | SAFE
The Optos Optomap Retinal Imaging System is a quick and painless procedure that captures a 200-degree image of your retina in just seconds. Traditional retinal imaging equipment can capture only 45° (or 15%) of the retina at a time.
During the retinal imaging procedure, you will be asked to look into the Optomap machine, which resembles a large camera. You will see a series of flashing lights as the machine captures multiple images of your retina.
The entire process takes less than a minute and is completely painless.
