Dilation and/or Retinal Imaging

Optomap Retinal Exam:

· Comprehensive, dilated-view of the retina

· Only takes 1/4 of a second per eye

· No blurry vision or light sensitivity

· Saved image to compare for any future changes

· Only costs $25

· Only available in Liverpool Location

Dilated Retinal Exam:

· Comprehensive, dilated-view of the retina

· Takes 20 extra minutes for drops to work

· Blurry vision and light sensitivity for 3 – 6 hours

We do need to inform you that even if you choose the Optomap, the doctor may still ask to dilate you, if

necessary, for further evaluation.
