Optos / Optomap

We purchased one. It's awesome. Patients love it and staff loves it. We got the new "Daytona" version
It is not "better" than a dilated fundus exam, but if sure is easier. I can really study a lesion w/o torturing a patient with dilation or bright light for minutes at a time. I can SHOW the patient their lesion instead of having them rely on my description or drawing in the file. And, of course, I can see a lot of lesions w/o dilating the patient. Patients HATE to be dilated. So before someone asks...of course we are not "stopping" dilating patients. But we sure as heck are cutting down. I'm happy about it, but the patients are happier. Not to mention the coolness factor. I'm a big fan.
