We can provide hospital-quality scans as part of your eye examination with an OCT (optical coherence tomography) machine. This state of the art piece of equipment helps our optician to see beneath the layers of your eyes to gain an accurate picture of their overall health.
Even if your eyes and vision appear perfectly healthy, many common eye diseases can creep up on you.
An OCT scan can help us to map out the thickness of the layers of your eyes and see your optic nerve, all of which can assist in detecting eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
OCT technology uses light waves to take images of your retina. The process is quick, painless and non-invasive.
Your OCT scan results stay on your record, so we can accurately monitor your eye health each time you come in for an eye test. Earlier detection of problems means swifter diagnosis and treatment.
