OPTOS Retinal Imaging
The Optos Daytona is an innovative new imaging system that eliminates the need for dilating your eyes during an eye exam.
What Is It?
The Optos Daytona is the desk-top sized model of Optos’ Optomap imaging devices. The Optos Daytona is perfectly sized and ergonomically designed for patient comfort, but that isn’t what makes it so special. What makes the Daytona unique is the patented Ultra-Wide field digital laser scanning technology. That technology allows the Optomap system to take detailed 200° images of the eye. Traditional methods only capture images of 45° or less.
What does it do?
This amazing device allows your eye doctor to see retinal, optic nerve and vascular structures not visible through regular exam methods. The Optos Daytona uses lasers to provide a high resolution scan meant to pick up early signs of structural change or disease. This allows your eye doctor to see changes in the retina and optic nerve with greater accuracy. Given the much higher resolution, it becomes easier to make early and accurate detection of common sight threatening eye conditions such as retinal detachment, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes, ocular cancers and high blood pressure.
My Interaction with Optos?
The high resolution images produced by the Optomap, are quick and painless to capture. The images will be reviewed with your doctor immediately after the photographs are taken. After reviewing your eye health, the photos will be stored for future reference, enabling your doctor to monitor any disease progression.
