Garland Vision Center recommends optomap retinal imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam.

We are thrilled to provide optomap to our patients in Garland Vision Center! 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.

Excellent customer service as soon as you walk-in, to the second you leave! My son’s glasses were ... in super quick and the eyeglass technician was very knowledgeable and friendly while helping us pick out his new glasses and during adjusting/fitting when picking up the new glasses. Great experience, thank you!

Great friendly and professional Staff. Dr.Kin really took her time and didn’t rush. She made sure ... my three little ones received the best vision care. I can’t remember this one Staff members name, I believe it was Sarah but she helped my son find his glasses and confidence. He was having a very hard time being a newbie to wearing glasses. Silent tears was falling and I have to admit I wasn’t making it any better. She left the biggest impression on me by calming him down, finding the perfect pair of glasses and making him feel cool about wearing them. I believe she was from Michigan big shout out and kudos to her! Thank you so much!

I came here for the first time having been a patient of Dr. Hernandez at the original Plano location... . Dr. Yin was very polite and took care to explain my symptoms to me. I was pleased to experience the same level of quality as I was used to. After reading some reviews, I remind others to remember that doctors and other HCPs have only as much information as you provide.

I've come here a couple years now and the physicians & service is always fantastic! I had a bit of a... n issue with my glasses last year, but Sarah was so professional and took care of everything. They were all so wonderful I came back again this year. Go see my guy Manuel, he'll help you pick out something fabulous from their wide selection of stylish frames.

I’ve had really good experiences here. The communication at the front desk with Katelyn is always ... very helpful and the exam process along with the checkout is always so swiftly taken care of by Sarah. The atmosphere is great!

I found Garland Vision amongst my providers after a bad experience with an eye chain care clinic. I ... was hesitant as I had two previous bad experiences but this one turned to be a nice experience. Staff is patience and kind, lenses take like a week to be made and quality of the product is great. I have four kids who wear lenses and they constantly get them broke, so good quality is something I always look for.
