Retinal Melanoma Diagnosed with the Optomap Retinal Exam

Here is a video where a retinal melanoma was initially diagnosed using the optomap® Retinal Exam.  The optomap® is a new generation of scanning laser ophthalmoscope that takes a series of 16 photos in 1/4 of a second and puts them together making a panoramic view of the back of a patient’s eye.  The optomap® allows us to view over 80% of the back of the eye without dilating the pupils.  The optomap® was also recently featured on the TV Show The Doctors.

The first 6 seconds of the video below is blank.
