Does imaging work as well as dilation in detecting issues?

To ensure their ocular health, patients are recommended to have a dilated eye exam or retinal imaging every one to two years. This procedure allows the doctor to identify any retinal issues that can permanently damage one’s vision. While both dilation and retinal imaging allow the doctor to access the ocular health, Optos® imaging often provides a deeper view, and the patient does not experience any side effects such as blurred vision.

Is Optos® cost covered by vision insurance?

Optos® imaging is an extra out-of-pocket cost of $20
