ABBA Eye Care - Alamosa recommends optomap retinal imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam.

We are thrilled to provide optomap to our patients in ABBA Eye Care - Alamosa! 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.

optomap imaging technology is setting a new standard for preventive eye health measures.

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

This technology complements our range of services, from routine eye exams to more in-depth care, ensuring you receive a thorough and accurate eye health assessment.

Getting your eyes checked regularly is important for maintaining good eye health. optomap imaging can help detect potential eye problems early on and give you a more informed understanding of your eye health. So, whether you're experiencing symptoms or just due for your regular eye checkup, make an appointment for the optomap eye exam.

From our eye exam appointments to picking up our glasses, the experience at Abba Eye Care in Alamosa... has been exemplary. But the most telling testimony to their capable hands is when I put on my new glasses and forgot they were even there! My husband had to ask me if I was wearing my new glasses before I realized several hours had passed since putting them on. I will be back.

I took my father to Abba for the exam before cataract surgery and Dr. Sicco is the best my father ha... s ever experienced at a eye glass company and she also impressed me by welcoming my presence during the exams so I had Dr. Sicco practice me a new prescription and the lenses for my eye glasses ended up being flawless! There are no variances in clarity at any direction I'm looking and I can see clearer than any other glasses I've had made any where else except lens crafters! Unfortunately the frames had a slight defect where the left arm swing out way further than the right but when I brought it up during my first adjustment it was still during the COVID pandemic so the lady adjusting stood almost six feet away from me and said she couldn't see his they looked crooked and didn't know if I exchanged them for another pair of frames if they would also be defective but I'll blame it on COVID for now because I don't want to taint the beautiful experience my father and I had by seeing Dr. Sicco, she is the best in the west!
