Early detection means early treatment for your eye health
An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (OCT scan) is the latest technology that will provide an in-depth assessment of your eye health. An OCT scan allows abnormalities within your eye to be detected up to five years before a traditional eye test. It can identify early warning signs through subtle changes of conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration as well as retinal and vitreous detachment.
Why get an OCT scan?
An OCT scan allows a much more detailed picture of your eye. Similar to an ultrasound or MRI scan, the OCT scan produces a 3D image showing us beyond the retinal surface. Allowing a cross sectional view of tissue layers within your eye leading to early detection of possible abnormalities.
The OCT scan which is suitable for all ages is a painless, non-invasive examination of your eye that provides you with invaluable on-going care for your eye health.
