We are thrilled to provide optomap to our patients in EyeCare Specialties of Colorado - Thornton! By adding optomap to your comprehensive eye exam, you are facilitating better eye health for you and your loved ones.

What is optomap Retinal Imaging?

Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina. Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy. Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.

Getting an optomap image 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 flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The image capture takes less than half a second and you can view it with your eye care provider.

optomap is a cutting-edge retinal imaging technology that provides a 200-degree view of the retina and unlike traditional eye exams, where your doctor can only view a small portion of the retina at a time, this larger, single-capture view enables your eye care professional to detect, diagnose, and treat eye conditions and diseases at the earliest stages.

Early Detection of Eye Conditions

With its expansive view, optomap imaging can identify signs of eye diseases such as nevi “eye freckles”, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration more easily.

Part of your Medical Health Record

Unlike traditional retinal exams, optomap can be saved to your medical record for future comparisons.

Protection even with no visual complaints

Recent studies have shown that doctors who use optomap imaging, are seeing retinal pathology 97% of the time in patients who have no vision complaints.


4 Reasons to Add optomap to Your Comprehensive Eye Exam

  • Efficiency and Comfort

    The eye exam is quick, painless, and comfortable for patients of all ages. optomap is complementary to dilation, and your eye care provider will determine if you require both.

Thank you to Alex for being such a welcoming person. I have a difficult time socializing with strang... ers outside of work and he made it much easier feeling comfortable with the place. Then the doctor himself did an amazing job helping me understand what all he was showing me and talking to me about. Definitely hope to be helped by them again.

This was my first visit to EyeCare Specialties after moving back to my hometown of Thornton/Northgle... nn. I needed a new local eye doctor and chose EyeCare Specialties due to the positive reviews. I am happy to say the reviews are RIGHT ON! I was immediately greeted by one of the best opticians I’ve ever encountered, Michael. He was friendly, informative, and just made me feel welcome. Then there is Eye Doc Joel, who I just can’t say anything negative about. He was efficient, extremely knowledgeable, and made the entire exam experience enjoyable. And last but definitely not least was my girl Allie, who completed my visit and helped get my two pairs of glasses ordered. Overall, I expected a lot from this place just from the reviews I read, but they ended up blowing those expectations out of the water with a top-notch experience from start to finish. I have definitely found my new home for eye care! Thank you all!!! Jason B

Staff, especially Michael, were extremely helpful, friendly, and engaging. They were very patient wi... th me going over the best combination of benefits for my veteran and employment insurance. There is a large selection of frames to choose from and Michael explained to me the quality of each additional coating for glasses. The physician and tech were thorough, answered my questions in detail, and were timely with exams. I also like that frames are delivered directly to your house.

While the whole stave is wonderful and very helpful, Allie is the best. I had some insurance issues ... and she was helpful from the start. Dr. Riggs was wonderful as well. Took time to explain what he was seeing and wasn’t in any hurry to get out the door and onto the next patient he took his time and was very thorough. They even help exchange The lenses after a week of me, not being able to get used to them. I will be back for a pair of prescription sunglasses!
