Alvernon Optical - Casas Adobes recommends optomap retinal imaging as part of your comprehensive eye exam.

We are thrilled to provide optomap to our patients in Alvernon Optical - Casas Adobes! By adding optomap to your comprehensive eye exam, you are facilitating better eye health for you and your loved ones.

What is optomap Retinal Imaging?

Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina. Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy. Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.

Getting an optomap image is fast, painless, and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time (like looking through a keyhole) and you will see a flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The image capture takes less than half a second and you can view it with your eye care provider.

optomap is a cutting-edge retinal imaging technology that provides a 200-degree view of the retina and unlike traditional eye exams, where your doctor can only view a small portion of the retina at a time, this larger, single-capture view enables your eye care professional to detect, diagnose, and treat eye conditions and diseases at the earliest stages.

optomap imaging technology is setting a new standard for preventive eye health measures.

Early Detection of Eye Conditions

With its expansive view, optomap imaging can identify signs of eye diseases such as nevi “eye freckles”, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration more easily.

Part of your Medical Health Record

Unlike traditional retinal exams, optomap can be saved to your medical record for future comparisons.

Protection even with no visual complaints

Recent studies have shown that doctors who use optomap imaging, are seeing retinal pathology 97% of the time in patients who have no vision complaints.


4 Reasons to Add optomap to Your Comprehensive Eye Exam

  • Comprehensive Health Insights

    Beyond eye health, this type of imaging can reveal indicators of systemic diseases, including potential risks for stroke and cardiovascular disease, offering a window into your overall well-being.

  • Efficiency and Comfort

    The eye exam is quick, painless, and comfortable for patients of all ages. optomap is complementary to dilation, and your eye care provider will determine if you require both.

  • A Foundation for Preventative Care

    The optomap retinal imaging device is crucial in preventative health care by facilitating early detection of both ocular and systemic conditions. Helping to safeguard not just your vision but your overall eye health.

  • A Key Component of Comprehensive Eye Care

This office has a fantastic selection of frames and wonderfully helpful and experienced opticians. ... I’m especially grateful to Dina who helped me find exactly the right frame and all the right lens choices for my needs. I was hesitant to try the Acuity progressive lenses but now I’m very happy I listened to Dina’s knowledgeable recommendations. I’m very impressed with the comfort and clarity of vision of these lenses!

Dr. Carol Schulte Is the best eye doctor I’ve ever been to and I’ve been wearing glasses since I... was 3. She’s very patient, knowledgeable and thorough. She explains what she’s doing and why every step of the way. She starts the exam asking if I have questions and is happy to answer any questions i have. I’ve recommended her to anyone who will listen.

This last Saturday was my 1st time coming to Alvernon Optical. I came here because I followed Dr. C... arol Schulte who I used to see at a different organization. Dr. Schulte Is a wonderful physician who is consistently very thorough and personable. She took time to go over the involved anatomy with my problem, and make great recommendations. Dina, the Optician, was the highlight of my visit there. She also is very personable, has a wonderful warm personality, and was very professional and thorough. Dina helped guide me to make the right choices for my lenses and frames. She was an absolute joy. I highly recommend Alvernon Optical on North Oracle for your vision and eye wear needs. Please go see Dr. Schulte and Dina. Your eyes will love you.

Carol Schulte is amazing! She explained everything very thoroughly and took the time out to show me ... diagrams and models of the eye to explain my eye health. She also asked if I had any questions and waited patiently while I thought of some and I felt very heard. Never have I had that at an exam, usually I'm rushed out right away. The staff were very nice and gentle as well. Best practice I've been to in years!

Just had another great annual eye exam with Dr. Carol Schulte. I appreciate that she asks questions ... about how my eyes have been over the past year and doesn’t assume that the computer predicted prescription is correct. She is compassionate about the frustrations of aging eyes and how they can change annually and offers cost-effective solutions.
