At Innovative Eye Care in Kalamazoo, we understand the importance of using the latest ocular technologies. We cannot provide the highest level of patient care using old, out of date equipment. We believe it is our duty to upgrade and add equipment as it is made available. Most recently, we have purchased a new retinal camera – the Optos® Daytona.
In this month’s blog post, we will discuss retinal imaging and the benefits of our new Optos® Daytona retinal camera at Innovative Eye Care. If you have any questions, or would like to schedule an appointment, do not hesitate to contact us.
The Optos® Daytona retinal camera produces a 200° single-capture retinal image (optomap) that is of extreme clarity in less than one second. This retinal no-contact camera is fast, easy, and non-invasive and provides an ultra-widefield view that is more precise than other retinal examination methods. The Daytona retinal camera improves patient eye care in a number of ways.
Enhances Clinical Decision-Making
Evaluation of the peripheral retina is critical for optimal patient management. The Daytona uses optomap imaging which captures the widest clinically usable
field of view and the most retinal pathology.
Reduces Appointment Time
Studies have shown that optomap images are much faster to capture and easier to review than traditional patient examination techniques. In fact, the use of this camera for retinal imagining reduces appointment time by nearly 30 minutes.
