Internal Ocular Health Evaluation
Since many eye problems can develop without symptoms, an internal ocular evaluation is an important component of a routine eye exam. To accomplish a full internal health assessment, our doctors highly recommend that all patients have a retinal scan (Optomap) and pupil dilation. The Optomap captures a digital image of about 80% of the inside of the eye without side effects but most insurances do not cover it. The pupil dilation is achieved by applying a series of drops and can take 15-20 minutes to take effect and about 4-6 hours to wear-off.
