Primary EyeCare - Columbia recommends optomap retinal imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam.

We are thrilled to provide optomap to our patients in Primary EyeCare - Columbia! By adding optomap to your comprehensive eye exam, you are facilitating better eye health for you and your loved ones.

What is optomap Retinal Imaging?

Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina. Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy. Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.

Getting an optomap image is fast, painless, and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time (like looking through a keyhole) and you will see a flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The image capture takes less than half a second and you can view it with your eye care provider.

optomap is a cutting-edge retinal imaging technology that provides a 200-degree view of the retina and unlike traditional eye exams, where your doctor can only view a small portion of the retina at a time, this larger, single-capture view enables your eye care professional to detect, diagnose, and treat eye conditions and diseases at the earliest stages.

optomap imaging technology is setting a new standard for preventive eye health measures.

Early Detection of Eye Conditions

With its expansive view, optomap imaging can identify signs of eye diseases such as nevi “eye freckles”, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration more easily.

Part of your Medical Health Record

Unlike traditional retinal exams, optomap can be saved to your medical record for future comparisons.

Protection even with no visual complaints

Recent studies have shown that doctors who use optomap imaging, are seeing retinal pathology 97% of the time in patients who have no vision complaints.


4 Reasons to Add optomap to Your Comprehensive Eye Exam

  • Comprehensive Health Insights

    Beyond eye health, this type of imaging can reveal indicators of systemic diseases, including potential risks for stroke and cardiovascular disease, offering a window into your overall well-being.

  • Efficiency and Comfort

    The eye exam is quick, painless, and comfortable for patients of all ages. optomap is complementary to dilation, and your eye care provider will determine if you require both.

  • A Foundation for Preventative Care

    The optomap retinal imaging device is crucial in preventative health care by facilitating early detection of both ocular and systemic conditions. Helping to safeguard not just your vision but your overall eye health.

  • A Key Component of Comprehensive Eye Care

    Incorporating the optomap device into our practice is part of our commitment to providing our patients with the highest standard of eye care. This technology complements our range of services, from routine eye exams to more in-depth care, ensuring you receive a thorough and accurate eye health assessment.

Getting your eyes checked regularly is important for maintaining good eye health. optomap imaging can help detect potential eye problems early on and give you a more informed understanding of your eye health. So, whether you're experiencing symptoms or just due for your regular eye checkup, make an appointment for the optomap eye exam.

We use to go to another Optometrist which I really like but it was hard to get an appointment & I ha... d been an established patient for years. Primary Eye Care got me right in, the employees are friendly & efficient & seem to go out of their way. Primary Eye Care is the only place we’ll go for all our eye needs.

Wow. I had the best experience I've ever had at an eye clinic. Fast, professional, and not in a hurr... y to get me in and out. They answered all of my questions, got my Rx fixed that another clinic messed up on and were very friendly. They get my whole family's business from here on! I never leave Google reviews but I had to on this one. Great business to deal with.

10/10 the front desk, the assistants, the doctor the price and the glasses store are all 10/10 best ... eye appointment I've ever had!

Incredible customer service from the entire staff. Had a bad eye infection and was in a lot of pain.... My regular doctor was out of town and I found them on Google Maps (after striking out at two other places). Walked in with no appointment, they had a full schedule, but they immediately responded with compassion and got me in to see a doctor. Went above and beyond in their care. They obviously put the patient first.

I was a new patient at this office and had an amazing experience! I was able to book my appointment ... the day before, and it went smooth, comfortable, and quick. They have lots of frames to choose from, and had the prescription filled in less than a week. They fixed my old glasses too, and installed a new screw. Everyone was so kind here and boosted my self esteem. Highly recommend this place for your vision needs!

I just had a new patient appointment at this office with my new baby girl in tow. Though I tried to ... schedule it at a good time for her, she started crying about halfway through the appointment. The staff and doctor were so understanding, and some even held her for me to try to calm her while I finished up my appointment. They went above and beyond to help this new mom out, and their kindness meant so much. Definitely recommend this office.
