Early detection means early treatment for your eye health

An Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scan is the latest technology developed to 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, and macular degeneration, as well as retinal and vitreous detachment.

Why get an OCT scan?

An OCT scan is the gateway to a much more detailed image of your eye. Similar to an ultrasound or a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan, the OCT scan will produce a 3D image of your eye beyond the retinal surface. An OCT scan will facilitate a cross-sectional view of the tissue layers within your eye. This cutting-edge technology is integral to the maintenance of your eye health and to early detection of possible abnormalities.

The OCT scan is a painless, non-invasive examination of your eye. It is suitable for clients of all ages.
