Marlborough, MA-Optos Inc. said its practitioner acceptance rate is growing for optomap plus Medical Retinal Exam, a procedure for medically necessary disease management and follow-up.

Practitioners use the core optomap Retinal Exam for wellness screening of patients presenting for comprehensive eye exams. optomap plus Medical Retinal Exam is used for patients that either have complaints that indicate pathology, have signs or symptoms of pathology, or have a medical history of pathology.

"The optomap plus Medical Retinal Exam allows a physician to turn the laser to look more specifically at the posterior pole or at the periphery when there is an area of concern, and provides irreplaceable information for following patients over time. The ability to measure a lesion actually in pixels is significant in terms of making sure our patients have excellent outcomes," said Richard Noyes, OD, of Iowa Eye Care.
