Optomap Retinal Eye Exam
A comprehensive retinal examination can detect eye disease like Age Related Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy and Retinal Detachments and diseases like Hypertension, which can also effect your overall health. We are committed to providing you with the highest standards in eye care, which is why we strongly recommend that you have an Optomap Retinal Eye Exam as part of your examination. The Optomap provides important information about your health without the need for uncomfortable pupil dilation.
The Optomap Exam is quick, comfortable and simple. Your retinal images will be displayed for review and will be stored electronically. This will give us a permanent record of the condition of your retina. This is very important in detecting and measuring changes to your retina. Be sure to make the Optomap exam part of your regular eye care!

Visible Genomics AMD Risk Assessment Testing
Professional Eye Care Center Eye Care offers genetic risk assessment testing for Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Because there is no cure for AMD, identifying high risk individuals leads to earlier intervention. Early intervention allows patients the time to modify behaviors earlier in life, possibly preventing the onset of the disease.
The Visible Genomics test combines a patient’s genetic status, ocular findings, demographic and behavior characteristics to deliver an accurate, reliable and clinically actionable AMD risk assessment.
