As far as what’s new at Eyes on Lincoln, we’re so excited to introduce the recent addition of Optomap retinal imaging to our services. The Optomap Retinal Exam provides a panoramic digital view of the back of a person’s eye (the retina). The view provided by the Optomap displays over 80% of the retina versus 15% of the standard traditional dilated exam. It is suitable for the whole family, which aligns perfectly with who we serve.
Getting an Optomap image is fast, painless, and comfortable – nothing touches your eye at any time. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time, much like looking through a keyhole, and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. Under most circumstances, dilation drops are not necessary.
The benefits of having an Optomap retinal image taken are significant. The procedure facilitates early protection from vision impairment or blindness as well as early detection of life-threatening diseases like cancer, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. Its unique ultra-wide field view helps your eye care practitioner detect early signs of retinal disease more effectively and efficiently than with traditional eye exams.
What do you see happening with the practice in the next five years?
We anticipate continued growth and expansion, and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Eyes on Lincoln is centrally located at 3200 O St., Suite A and maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
