Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. Dr. Janot begins all comprehensive eye exams with the latest in eye imaging systems, the optomap® Retinal Exam. The optomap® Retinal Exam produces an image that is as unique as you fingerprint and provides Dr. Janot with a wide view to look at the health of your retina. The retina is the part of your eye that captures the image of what you are looking at, similar to film in a camera.
Many eye problems can develop without you knowing. You may not even notice any change in your sight. But, diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
Dr. Robert Janot’s Vision Source in Sulphur, LA. Offers New Daytona Retinal Imaging System
October, 2012 - Dr. Robert Janot, Sulphur, LA, announces that his Vision Source practice is one of the first in the U.S. to offer the new Optomap Daytona LASER scan, a vastly improved retinal examination over previous technology. As of this writing, Dr. Janot’s was one of only 3 optometric practices in the state to have the new Daytona technology.
Like its predecessors in the Optos family, Daytona provides an unequaled 200° view of the retina in a single capture. The result is a high-resolution, high-contrast image – the optomap.
This comprehensive view of up to 82% of the retina in one image, gives Dr. Janot the opportunity to identify and follow changes in your eye health.
Optos has 100 completed and ongoing clinical studies that support how optomap’s ultra-wide view of the retina helps eyecare professionals like Dr. Janot provide the best care for their patients. The high-resolution digital images can be easily stored for later study, future reference or comparison, and shared with other providers.
The newest generation of Optos technology, Daytona, has been specifically redesigned to provide ultra-high resolution imaging, and adding new ultra-widefield auto-fluorescence capabilities. Weighing only about 60 pounds, Daytona’s new, ergonomic body is designed to increase patient comfort, as well as make it easier to correctly position the eye. The new Daytona imaging system is featured in the video above.
The optomap® Retinal Exam is fast, easy, and comfortable for all ages. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The optomap® image is shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you.
