opticians-optomap-retinal-screening

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

“It is unusual to watch any rugby game without seeing at least one player lose a contact lens......You then have the usual delay of the player trying to clean his hands on the pitch and trying to get the lens back in while the physio holds a tiny mirror. Unfortunately that used to be me, until I found out about i-GO.

Now I simply put in the iGO lenses before I go to sleep and take them out when I wake up and there it is - perfect vision. The lenses are really simple to put in, due to them being very small and rigid, and even easier to take out. Since you sleep in the lenses and your eye ball doesn't move, you don't even notice you have the lenses in.

The lenses not only make training and playing easier, they also have a big effect on daily life. I used to have to wear glasses to drive and watch TV but with the lenses I no longer need the glasses.

Like some other iGO users I initially experienced problems at night time from flare around car head lights. However my iGO optician explained that this was due to me having large pupils and that the problem would be resolved over time through continuing to wear the lenses.

iGO lenses have had a massive effect on my career, allowing me to play without worrying about losing a lens and knowing I will have perfect vision for the whole game.”
