SHREVEPORT, La., May 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silverblatt Eye Clinic is proud to announce their new business name, chosen to be more encompassing of their eye care team and services.  They are the only optometry clinic offering patients in northwest Louisiana the benefits of the optomap retinal exam. Patients can now receive a more thorough assessment of their eye health and earlier detection of significant eye disease conditions with the advanced capabilities of an Optomap Retinal Exam. The exam is comfortable and quick for patients and provides an in-depth evaluation with advanced detailed imaging. Optomap results offer more information about the eye structure when compared with traditional eye exams, helpful in the diagnosis and treatment of macular degeneration, glaucoma, and other ocular conditions.

Optomap Retinal Exams are comfortable and painless for patients. A comprehensive image of the eye structures and health of the eye can be used to detect early signs of macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Individuals of all ages can receive an optomap eye exam.

Patients look into the instrument one eye at a time and a flash of green light will then signal that an image of the retina has been taken. The image is immediately available for review on a computer screen and an optometrist and their patient can discuss any findings.

Patients may be unaware that traditional eye exams only show 15 percent of the retina. In comparison, an optomap retinal exam image shows over 80 percent of the retina. Benefits of the enhanced imaging capabilities include a more detailed view of the retina, a scan to show the health of the eye, an opportunity to discuss findings immediately with the optometrist, and a permanent record of eye health. The Optomap Retinal Exam is safe for use on children and adults.

“The Optomap Retinal Exam is an advanced diagnostic tool that can safely help us assess eye health and provide eye doctors and patients information immediately to address eye health and eye disease concerns,” said Sam R. Silverblatt, O.D.

“As an experienced Shreveport optometrist, I am pleased with the additional information available for superior diagnostic capabilities using the optomap camera,” said Rachel Meyer-Borel, O.D.
