Optomap has been shown to enhance pathology detection and disease management. Optos introduced ultra-widefield (UWF™) retinal imaging to enable Dr. Yepremian to discover, diagnose, document, and treat ocular pathology that may first present in the periphery - pathology which may go undetected using traditional examination techniques and equipment. The UWF, high-resolution retinal imaging devices each image more than 80% or 200˚ of the retina in a single capture.
Optos does not replace dilation, which is the current standard of care for retinal evaluation. It does enhance the dilation exam, where a picture is worth a thousand words. There are some instances where subtle changes are not noted through the dilation alone. The Optos image will allow us to capture the current retinal state and see if subtle changes have occurred over the years. Optos does not replace dilation but provides an alternative method to look inside the eyes. Both options together will give us the best outcome.
Dr. Yepremian knows your vision is important to you which is why she is dedicated in providing you with the best care possible. We hope you agree! Call us today -at (818) 240-3937
