Optomap Retinal Screening is a procedure that enables the optometrist to see as much of the retina (the back of the eye) as possible. The reason this is important is that – whilst regular eye exams check the health of the front of your eyes – a thorough screening of the retina is required to check overall health.
Benefits of Optomap Technology
Some eye conditions (e.g. glaucoma, retinal tears) and health concerns (e.g. diabetes, hypertension) can be identified in the retina. Early detection improves the chances of successful treatment.
While traditional ways of examining the retina only reveal a small portion of the retina at a time, the Optomap Retinal eye exams show almost the whole of the retina at one time. It is a quick and painless procedure.

“I want you to know how grateful we are for your help with my mother-in-law....
...Following her first cataract operation she was quite distressed due to her prescription being wrong. Poor balance, poor vision, she had several weeks of this to look forward to until her second operation.Enter Simon Falk and his team, heroes of the hour, to fit a temporary lens and take the time to talk to her about what to expect. Not only that but Simon wrote a strong letter to the hospital urging a quicker second operation. My mother-in-law feels so much more confident and able to venture out.This is just one example of your excellent service. My husband, my son and I have all been your clients for several years.
