We are thrilled to provide optomap to our patients in Shawnee Optical - Springfield! By adding optomap to your comprehensive eye exam, you are facilitating better eye health for you and your loved ones.

What is optomap Retinal Imaging?

Your retina (located in the back of your eye) is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina. Early signs of these conditions can show on your retina long before you notice any changes to your vision or feel pain. While eye exams generally include a look at the front of the eye to evaluate health and prescription changes, a thorough screening of the retina is critical to verify that your eye is healthy. Early detection means successful treatments can be administered and reduces the risk to your sight and health.

Getting an optomap image is fast, painless, and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time (like looking through a keyhole) and you will see a flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. The image capture takes less than half a second and you can view it with your eye care provider.

optomap is a cutting-edge retinal imaging technology that provides a 200-degree view of the retina and unlike traditional eye exams, where your doctor can only view a small portion of the retina at a time, this larger, single-capture view enables your eye care professional to detect, diagnose, and treat eye conditions and diseases at the earliest stages.

Early Detection of Eye Conditions

With its expansive view, optomap imaging can identify signs of eye diseases such as nevi “eye freckles”, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration more easily.

Part of your Medical Health Record

Unlike traditional retinal exams, optomap can be saved to your medical record for future comparisons.

Protection even with no visual complaints

Recent studies have shown that doctors who use optomap imaging, are seeing retinal pathology 97% of the time in patients who have no vision complaints.

I ordered sunglasses and daily glasses and needed to change lenses in my sunglasses. Stopped in on F... riday a half hour before closing and Tom sat down with us to help me understand and correct the lenses. He took his time and was so wonderful. I had the absolute best experience and can’t say enough about how patient & kind he was. Thank you Shawnee optical & Tom. 5 stars all day long. Wish I could give 10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Until recently it had been many years since I had purchased my last pair of glasses from Shawnee Opt... ical but the staff were always ready to provide good customer service when I would take my glasses in for minor repairs. I recently had an eye exam at Shawnee Optical and purchased a new pair of glasses. The optometrist and staff were very professional and patient and again provided good service. In my opinion this business is an asset to our community and I plan to continue to support them as a part of our local economy.

UPDATE: The manager did take care of the situation below, that resulted in a 1 star. Along with tha... t, I gave Shawnee Optical another go at delivering a better experience. I ordered another pair of glasses. The process was smooth, the staff was more than helpful, and the order came in ridiculously fast! Great job pulling it together and coming through. Old review: Horrible experience, and still without glasses after SIX weeks! My wife and daughter went to Shawnee Optical to look at their selection of glasses. My daughter, 7 years old, required glasses to correct astigmatisms in both eyes with the hope of resolving her migraines. We needed to obtain the glasses as soon as possible. On January 20th, they tried on glasses, and on January 23rd, we called to set up the order. Angel told me that everything would be fine, and we would have my daughter’s first set of eyewear within two weeks. On February 1st, I call to check on the status of the order. The gentleman said he could not find the order and would have to check with Angel to see what’s going on. February 4th, I get a call back from the same gentleman. He said the order did not go through, they could not expedite, and it would be another two weeks. I called again on February 18th and he said I would get them “next Monday or Tuesday.” I called on February 22nd, and the office is closed for repairs and won’t be open until 03/01/2021. Today, 03/01/2021, I called, the office is still closed, and their voicemail is STILL full. Almost SIX weeks into the ordering process with no glasses for my child….. This would not have been easy to deal with if it was my order. However, since my seven-year-old daughter continues to have migraines, it makes it 100 times worse. I hope this review deters other parents from going through the same issue.
