Dr Egbert and the Team at Richardson Eye of Battle Ground are committed to providing our patients the best eye care possible, and we know that bringing the latest technology to the office is vital to achieving our goal.
We are excited to introduce the most recent advancement in retinal imaging, Optomap ultra-widefield retinal imaging. Optomap images are taken in seconds and provide a high-resolution 200 degree digital image of the retina. This increased view of the peripheral retina provides the doctor an extremely effective tool to more quickly and easily diagnose and treat diseases such as: retinal holes, tears, and detachments; choroidal nevi (retinal freckles) and ocular melanoma and tumors. These valuable images become part of your medical record and will be used to track subtle retinal changes and lead to even better visual outcomes.
iWellness Scan provides the doctor with a below-the-surface view of the individual retinal layers (similar to MRI technology but without the radiation). With this valuable information, the doctors are able to detect and treat eye diseases in their earliest stages – when they are most treatable. The iWellness Scan is most sensitive to the three most common causes in vision loss in America: Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, and Diabetic Eye Disease.
These additional scans are not covered by insurance.
Both scans: $50
