The Optomap® Retinal Exam in Camas, WA

Optomap® Retinal Exam Detects Disease Earlier!

optomap retinal exam

Optomap Retinal Exam, an ultra-widefield retinal examination, is the revolutionary diagnostic tool that allows clinicians to view a majority of the retina. The Optomap Retinal Exam is a non-dilating camera that captures a digital image of the retina. The Optomap allows the doctor to capture a 200° high-resolution image of the retina in a single shot-- without dilation -- in a quarter of a second. It’s easy for the patient, takes just a few minutes to perform, and is immediately available for review with the patient in the exam room.

What can the Optomap® detect?

Both ocular and systemic disease can be detected with the Optomap.  The device allows us to evaluate your retina for problems such as macular degeneration, retinal holes, retinal detachments, hypertension and diabetic retinopathy. Benign nevi or "freckles" of the back of the eye can also be found just like freckles on your skin.  A device like the Optomap is critical to differentiate benign "freckles" versus malignant melanomas of the retina. The Optomap allows you the opportunity to see the inside of your eye just as the doctor sees it!

Dr. Lewis recommends Optomap retinal imaging because:

  •  It allows for enlargement of image to see more detailed view of the retina
  •  It takes just a few minutes start-to-finish, a much shorter office visit than if dilation is performed
  •  You leave the office with vision intact, rather than with light-sensitivity and blur
  •  Creates a permanent record
  •  Allows for future comparisons--we can compare this year’s image to next year’s image—side by side
  •  Can be reviewed by other doctors, if necessary

Dear Patients,

Dr. Lewis Eye Care has made the difficult choice to temporarily close due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic based on the recommendation of the CDC. We cannot perform eye exams while maintaining social distancing, so continuing to see patients at this time could contribute to the spread of the virus.

Our initial plan had been to reopen Monday April 6th. However, as we get closer to that date it is becoming apparent that we may have to be closed for a longer, indefinite period of time.

If you are having an urgent eye health issue, there are some clinics in our area that are seeing patients for emergencies during shorter business hours. You should call ahead to those offices before going to their clinic, as their availability might change day by day. Those clinics could include Vancouver Eye Care at 360-823-2020, Peace Health Medical Group Eye Care at 360-514-7210, and Vancouver Clinic in Salmon Creek at 360-882-2778.

If you need a glasses or contact lens prescription emailed to you from our office, click on the Contact Form link, type in your name, email, and what you are requesting, and we will email you the information you need as soon as we can.

Thank you for your understanding, and please stay healthy during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

Dr. Scott Lewis, OD
