Our Lake Worth eye doctors offer this state-of-the-art technology. The Optomap exam 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 comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken.
Under normal circumstances, dilation drops might not be necessary, but our eye care practitioner will decide if your pupils need to be dilated depending on your conditions. The capture takes less than a second. Images are available immediately for review. You can see your own retina. You see exactly what your eye doctor sees – even in a 3D animation!
The benefits of having an Optomap ultra-widefield retinal image taken are:
The unique Optomap ultra-widefield view helps your eye care specialist detect early signs of retinal disease more effectively and efficiently than with traditional eye exams.
Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.

Did you know that Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) destroys central vision, is the leading cause of severe vision loss in adults over age 55, and currently affects approximately 15 million people? Due to the aging Baby Boomer population, the incidence of AMD is expected to triple by 2025. While there is no cure for AMD, and its effects are irreversible, there are both modifiable and non-modifiable risks.
Smoking (past or present)
Low Macular Pigment
Light colored skin and eyes
Unprotected exposure to the sun
Gender – females are more at risk
The modifiable risk factors can be greatly reduced by taking AREDS 2 supplements daily, wearing sunglasses to protect the eyes and eating a diet with plenty of dark green leafy vegetables. Backed by over 20 years of scientific research, the AREDS 2 Plus Multi-Vitamin is guaranteed to help protect vision from age-related eye health issues. AREDS 2 Plus Multi-Vitamin is formulated to provide essential nutrients that also improve overall health.

Age-related macular degeneration or AMD is the deterioration of a part of the retina called the macula, which controls your ability to see fine detail. This disease is the leading cause of vision loss among Americans above the age of 65. Fight AMD with MacuHealth®, a soft-gel supplement that contains LMZ3 that’s designed to help enhance your vision by revitalizing the natural pigments in your eyes.
MacuHealth® with LMZ3 contains three essential nutrients: lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin, which make up the natural substance known as macular pigment. With regular consumption of these essential carotenoids, you can reduce the onset of AMD and loss of central vision by decreasing the amount of oxidative stress on the macula.
Studies have shown that consuming these nutrients in a 10:10:2 formulation is crucial to maintaining healthy vision. While lutein and zeaxanthin can be found in many vegetables, meso-zeaxanthin is more commonly found in trout. Unfortunately, the standard Western diet does not provide enough nutrients to fully supplement your eyes’ needs. As a result, many experts believe that taking supplements is the optimum method of protecting your macula.
MacuHealth® is for you if you experience any of the following symptoms:
Seeing a blurry or blind spot in the center of your field of vision
Colors seem more muted and less vibrant
You require more light when reading and experience difficulty in low-lit areas
Printed words appear blurry
Have difficulty recognizing faces
Overall blurry or hazy vision
Glare bothers you
Talk to our Lake Worth eye doctors immediately if you experience any of these symptoms.
Macular degeneration progresses differently for every individual. In some, it may advance more slowly, while there are those who may suffer faster loss of vision in one or both eyes. The nutrients found in MacuHealth supplements have been shown to reduce the risk of AMD and even improve overall visual acuity in some cases.
