At Dr. Bonsett-Veal Vision Source we pride ourselves on providing our patients with the best possible standard of care. Because of this we now perform the optomap® Retinal Exam with all of our patients.

As part of a pre-test work up we will capture optomap® images for review with the doctor during your examination.

This non-invasive procedure allows Dr. Bonsett-Veal to see a much broader and more detailed view of the retina than is possible with conventional methods.

“The retina is a thin layer of tissue at the back of the eye that contains millions of tiny light-sensing nerve cells called rods and cones.  Rods provide peripheral vision, allow us to detect motion and see at night and in dim light.  Cones provide clear, sharp central vision and detect colors and fine details in bright light.  These cells in the retina convert the light into electrical impulses. The optic nerve sends these impulses to the brain where an image is produced.”

When reviewed, the scan becomes a permanent part of your medical file, enabling Dr. Bonsett-Veal to make important comparisons should potential vision threatening conditions show themselves at a future examination.

Dr. Bonsett-Veal strongly believes that the optomap® Retinal Exam is an essential part of your comprehensive eye exam and prescribes it for all patients once per year.
