At Valley Vision Clinic & Optical in Richfield, UT, we offer comprehensive eye exams for patients of all ages. With the help of Optos eye imaging, we can see your eyes clearly to diagnose various eye conditions early on before symptoms set in. We can also ensure your prescription is up to date through eye imaging tests. Our optometrists are committed to providing thorough evaluations of your vision and overall eye health during your annual exam through state-of-the-art imaging tests.
Why Are Eye Exams Important?
Maintaining an annual eye exam is important as many eye conditions don’t show any noticeable symptoms at first, like glaucoma. The only way to know if you have it is through a tonometry test. Optos eye imaging allows us to see your retina clearly. It instantly creates a map of your retina, which allows us to check your eye health quickly and accurately.
Poor eyesight left untreated can lead to health problems, including headaches, eye strain, and dry eyes. During the vision portion of your eye exam, we will have you look at arrows, letters, and lines to see how accurately you see objects. During a vision exam, our optometrists will check for astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness.
What Is Optos Eye Imaging?
Our optometrists use Optos eye imaging to diagnose and treat various eye conditions and diseases. Unlike pupil dilation that can only see a small portion of your eye (about 15%), Optos eye imaging allows us to see about 80%. This gives us a broader picture of your eyes. It also saves time because a scan takes half a second. There is no need for dilation, and it’s painless, making it a great option for patients of all ages.
Optos eye imaging can be used to look at nerves, arteries, and blood vessels in the eye, which can help us diagnose diabetes, heart disease, and other health issues. Once you have your imaging photos, we create a file. This allows us to keep them and compare future scans to track your ocular health over time.
