Scheduling an Eye Exam at Accent Vision Care
When scheduling an eye exam at Accent Vision Care, you can be confident that you and your family will receive quality eye health and vision care in a friendly environment. Our expert eye doctors use the latest in diagnostic technology to evaluate your eye health for issues of which you may not be aware, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, retinal damage, and more.
Before you schedule an exam, please be aware of the following:
Required Retinal Imaging
- Our eye doctors will conduct the Optomap retinal exam during your visit to obtain an Optos wide-field digital retinal image.
- This digital image will help your eye doctor view the health of your eye and monitor for any potential vision-threatening conditions.
- The digital screening images are only $39 and are not covered by medical or vision insurance. The charge will be added to the balance of your visit.
What are the benefits of getting an Optomap?
Early signs of disease can be present in the periphery of the retina and remain undetected for a long time when using traditional examination methods. While traditional methods typically only show 15% of the retina at one time, the Optomap ultra-widefield retinal image captures more than 80% of the retina in a single image. The unique Optomap ultra-widefield view helps your doctor detect early signs of retinal disease more effectively and efficiently than with traditional eye exams.
Your digital scan will be a permanent record for your medical file so that your doctors can track changes in your eyes over time. It is generally recommended that an Optomap is taken during every comprehensive eye exam. Optomap retinal exams are non-invasive and safe for pregnant women and children.
