Despite its name, the Daytona Plus has nothing to do with beaches. This device provides the optometrist with the latest in technology to test the health of your eyes. We offer this technology to our patients here at Foster Vision in Portland. With this device, we’re able to see more of the retina of your eye, helping our eye doctors identify serious conditions early.
How the Technology Works
Unlike traditional retinal imaging devices that only capture 45 degrees in their field of view, the technology of this imager can capture 200 degrees in under 0.5 seconds. You put your eye against the machine, and it snaps a quick image of the inside of your eye. You won’t feel a thing, and the eye doctor has an image of the back of your eye, called the retina. Diseases can have innocuous beginnings inside your eye, even before you notice symptoms. With this technology, your optometrist can identify problems early, allowing for intervention sooner, which could save your sight.
The heart of this machine is the Optomap technology from the company that makes this device operate. Without the software and scanning abilities to capture a greater area of your eye, this device would be the same as other retinal images. By incorporating this machine into our practice, we at Foster Vision show our continued devotion to providing our patients with the best possible eye care.
