Alvernon Optical - Tanque Verde recommends optomap retinal imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam.

We are thrilled to provide optomap to our patients in Alvernon Optical - Tanque Verde! 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.

What are the Benefits of optomap Imaging?

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.

This has been my go to for eye exams and glasses. Great staff!

Dr Lewis has been helping me with my eyes for going on 20 years now. I always look forward to my 10... to 15 minutes with him. He's great and I always get the best prescription for the time. When he moved to Alvernon Optical I went too. Picked up my new glasses today (Saturday) and everything is still wonderful. The new glasses cleaned up all the fuzziness and I couldn't be happier. He takes care of my wife’s eyes as well and when she started having cataract issues that went beyond what new glasses could do, he recommended the right people who fixed her up. It was a pleasure working with the rest of the office staff (manager, eye tech and opticians) as well.

Excellent vibes. Have had a great experience both times I've been. The exam receptionist is absolute... ly lovely and Dr Peterson has been super easy to work with. I trust what they tell me and feel very comfortable in the space. I would highly recommend this office

Having used another optical store previously, I visited Alvernon Optical's Tanque Verde office hopin... g for better services than what I had received before. With same-day appointments and reasonable prices, my wife and I were in and out quickly. Glasses were cheaper than at the other store, and were ready before the promised two-week delivery. One visit is not much to go on, but both of us were pleased with our first experience here.

I had just finished hiking at Sabino Canyon and then accidentally sat on my glasses. It was late Fri... day afternoon and I needed find a place to fix them. Alvernon was close by and reviews were great- now I'm adding mine! Sorry I don't have the staff person's name, but they were kind and skillful in realigning my glasses and cleaned the lenses, too! They did this with a smile! Although I didn't buy my glasses here, they were gracious to help with a complimentary service. Thank you! If I lived here, you would be my optical provider!
