Optomap Retinal Screening is a procedure that enables the optometrist to see as much of the retina (the back of the eye) as possible. The reason this is important is that – whilst regular eye exams check the health of the front of your eyes – a thorough screening of the retina is required to check overall health.

Some eye conditions (e.g. glaucoma, retinal tears) and health concerns (e.g. diabetes, hypertension) can be identified in the retina. Early detection improves the chances of successful treatment.

While traditional ways of examining the retina only reveal a small portion of the retina at a time, the Optomap Retinal eye exams show almost the whole of the retina at one time. It is a quick and painless procedure.

What our customers say

“I have been using Simon Falk Opticians for my eye care......and Julie in particular for my contact lenses for 15 years. In this time I have received nothing but 100% service and customer satisfaction.

Julie always keeps me up to date with new contact lens products that have entered the market and allows me to trial them to see if I prefer them to my current contact lenses. I believe Julie’s knowledge of the contact lens field is second to none.

On the rare occasion I have had a problem with my contact lenses, Julie has gone out of her way to make sure the problem is fixed as soon as possible, whilst ensuring the general health of my eyes are not compromised. I would not trust anyone else but Julie and Simon Falk with my eye care needs.”
