Retinal Health and Nutrition Screening Form Medicare

  • Allisonville Eye Care Center continues to offer advanced vision care, and we know that our patients want technology that safeguards their eye health. We now perform two important screening tests at your annual eye examination. (non-diabetics only) These tests are not covered by insurance plans, but we have reduced the copay as shown below. WE ARE ASKING YOU TO COMPLY WITH THIS PROTOCOL DUE TO THE COVID PANDEMIC TO REDUCE CLOSE CONTACT WHILE ENABLING THE BEST EXAMINATION.
  • 1) OptoMap Screening Retinal Imaging- to see the inside of your eye

    The Optomap is a fast and non-invasive technique to capture an essential view of the  retina to help uncover ocular diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, hypertension, and eye cancer. If these conditions go undetected, they could lead to vision loss and ultimately blindness. If you elect to have an Optomap, the Doctor may not need to dilate-but dilation does NOT replace the advanced view available with the Optomap.

     2) 2 NEW FOR 2020: Skin Carotenoid Scan- Macular Pigment/General Nutrition Status

    Macular Pigment (MP) in the back of the eye is essential for clear vision and protection from eye disease. In fact, patients with the highest vs. lowest levels of MP are 82% less likely to develop macular degeneration the number one cause of vision loss at age 55 and above. Research-backed technology allows us to evaluate your MP level and general nutrition status with a 30-second scan of your hand.
