Cameron Optometry has become one of the first optometrists to offer patients the new Daytona eye care technology as part of their routine eye exams in an effort to help raise the standard and importance of regular eye exams.

Most of us remember to have our car serviced, or visit the dentist for a check up, but how many of us know to have our eyes checked even if we’re not experiencing any sight problems? Eye exams are more than just checking the need for glasses or contact lenses, but are also about checking the health of the inside of our eyes (especially the retina) and our body. The eye is the only place in the body where, without surgery, it’s possible to look in and see blood vessels, arteries and even part of the brain so it’s vital to have regular eye exams that include a comprehensive retina check.

Daytona is the latest imaging technology available from Optos and it offers patients the most comprehensive and groundbreaking retinal exam available in a quick and painless procedure. The high-resolution optomap images Daytona produces can help our optometrists detect early signs of eye conditions (e.g. retinal tears/detachments, macular degeneration, glaucoma) and non-eye diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.
