RETINAL HEALTH ASSESSMENTS – OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY SCANS (OCT)
WHAT IS OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY SCANS (OCT)?
An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology.
The OCT allows us to take extremely detailed 3D images of your retina and its cellular layers to look for damage. It’s like an MRI of the eye but using light and no radiation. With this instrument we are able to detect signs of glaucoma and macular degeneration sometimes up to 10 years earlier. The OCT gives us a more detailed view of the retina and optic nerve than traditional instrumentation.
With an OCT scan we are provided with colour-coded, cross-sectional imaging of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and diabetic retinal disease.
An OCT scan is a non-invasive, painless test. It is performed in 5 minutes right in our practice.
RETINAL HEALTH ASSESSMENTS – ADVANCED DIGITAL RETINAL IMAGING
Optometrists have always looked at the back of your eye, the retina, to ensure that your eye is healthy inside as well as outside. With this technology we can take an incredibly accurate digital image to keep on record. Not only does this allow any concerns to be shared with other health care professionals, but it also supports early diagnosis of ocular conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes and macular degeneration.
