We leverage on the Optomap Ultra-widefield Retinal Imaging technology for early detection of retinal disease.
Explore and learn more about Optomap's cutting-edge technology and its benefits for your vision health.
Eye diseases often show early signs in the outer edges of the retina, where they can easily be missed using traditional diagnostic methods. However, the groundbreaking Optomap Ultra-Widefield Retinal Image Technology captures over 80% of your retina in a single image. In contrast, conventional imaging techniques typically only reveal about 15% of your retina at a time.
Our cutting-edge imaging solution offers a comprehensive view of your eye health, enabling early detection and timely intervention to protect your vision, allowing eye doctors to detect retinal tears, peripheral retinal defects, as well as early signs of diseases that appear on your retina such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
Optomap is a valuable tool that complements dilation or serves as an alternative when dilation is not possible. In specific situations, the Optomap can provide superior results compared to dilation, particularly when examining the retina is challenging, such as with patients sensitive to light or children.

What is an Optomap image?
It is a high-resolution, digital image of your retina that provides a detailed view of its structure and health.
With this advanced technology our optometrist, Dr. Wendy Ng, can accurately assess your retinal health and determine the best course of action for preserving your vision.
How does Optomap work?
Optomap uses advanced scanning laser technology to capture a high-resolution 200° panoramic image of your retina in just seconds. The process is non-invasive and painless.
To take the scan, 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.
Dr. Wendy Ng will walk you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
Typically, dilation drops may not be required to perform the scan, but our optometrist will assess the condition of your eyes to determine if your pupils need to be dilated. The image capture process is quick, taking less than half a second, and the results are instantly available for you to view your own retina in an incredible 3D animation.
The benefits of Optomap:
Early detection of eye diseases, especially for those that may not show any visual symptoms
Improved patient comfort compared to dilation
Faster imaging process
Comprehensive view of your retina in a single image
High-resolution image for accurate assessment
Frequently asked questions about optomap
What makes a retinal exam so important?
Early signs of diseases like stroke, diabetes, and certain cancers can often be detected in your retina even before other symptoms appear. An Optomap provides a clearer view, making it easier to identify these signs and take necessary action.
Is an Optomap a safe option for children?
Of course! Many vision problems actually begin in early childhood, making it incredibly important for children to receive regular, high-quality eye care.
What is the recommended frequency for having an Optomap?
The decision regarding this matter should be left to your optometrist, as they are best equipped to provide guidance. However, in general, it is advisable to undergo an Optomap during each eye examination.
What are the advantages of opting for Optomap?
The revolutionary Ultra-Widefield Optomap enables optometrists and ophthalmologists to swiftly and effortlessly identify any eye health problems. Unlike conventional retinal exams, the Optomap image can be stored for future reference, facilitating comparisons over time.
Does it hurt?
Absolutely not! The experience is incredibly comfortable, and the scan is completed in less than a second.
Are there any potential adverse effects?
Optomap images are generated using non-intrusive, low-intensity scanning lasers. This cutting-edge technology ensures a precise and gentle approach to capturing detailed images. No adverse health effects have been reported in over 150 million sessions.
