Optos exclusively at Park Vision in Nottingham
We LOVE the styling process at Park Vision (…speaking as a National Fashion Practice of the Year Winner) but an eye examination is not just about choosing new frames. We’re just as passionate about the latest optical technology as we are the latest fashion trends. All private eye examinations at Park Vision use the Optomap as standard, a digital image of the retina produced by Optos scanning laser technology. It is the only technology that can capture 82% view of your retina at one time.
Does it hurt? No, it is completely comfortable and the scan takes less than a second.
Optos was founded over 20 years ago by Douglas Anderson after his then five-year-old son, Leif, went blind in one eye when a retinal detachment was detected too late. Routine exams were uncomfortable, especially for a child, which made it impossible for the doctor to conduct a complete exam and view the entire retina. Douglas set out to develop a patient-friendly retinal imaging product that encompassed a digital ultra-widefield image of the retina, easily.
"With the optomap exam, Leif's detached retina might have been detected in time to be properly treated. His eye could have been saved." - Douglas Anderson
