optomap®

BBR Optometry is proud to offer the very latest in retinal imaging technology, with the Optos® Daytona:

Optos® Daytona at BBR Optometry

The Optos® Daytona scans your eye to produce a digital image of the retina, called an optomap®.

Field of view without optomap®

Without optomap®

Traditional scans can only record about 15% of the retina at any one time

Field of view with optomap®

The ultra-widefield optomap® scan

The optomap® shows 80% of a retina

The ultra-wide field of view considerably speeds up the screening process, helping your optometrist to quickly identify potential issues and recommend a course of action that will minimise future problems.

One quick scan shows 80% of a retina, helping your optometrist to immediately identify potential health issues

3D OCT-2000

3D OCT

BBR Optometry was the first optometry practice to bring retinal imaging to the Hereford high street (Polaroid film 1989) which became digital in 2000.

OCT is Optical Coherence Tomography. This is the next generation in imaging the internal structures of the eye. The OCT is a special scanner that creates a sort of optical ultrasound three dimensional image of the inside of the eye. The unique way the image is formed means that for the first time we can actually see below the surface of the retina and view the microscopic layers beneath. This is of profound importance in determining the precise diagnosis of visual problems and in helping us guide patients on the treatment options possible.

Once again BBR Optometry is able to offer its patients direct access to the most sophisticated eye examination available.

3D OCT imaging is automatically part of your BBR private Eye Examination and is included in our extension to the NHS Sight Test.

Typical conditions requiring OCT:

  • Macular degeneration or drusen
  • Macular hole or epiretinal membrane
  • At risk glaucoma
  • Vitreous Floaters
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Optic nerve disease
