3D EYE SCANNING

THE BENEFITS OF OCT

We don’t just care about your vision we care about your health too.  With an OCT eye health scan, we can detect indications of numerous diseases such as diabetes, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and much more.

 

OCT stands for Ocular Coherence Tomography.  It is a very detailed non-contact scanner that creates an optical ultrasound-like 3D image of the inside of the eye. OCT scanning uses light waves to take cross-section images of the back of the eye (the retina). The unique way the image is formed means that for the first time we can see below the surface of the retina and view the microscopic layers beneath.

HOW IT WORKS

 

Capturing an OCT image is a quick and comfortable procedure.  It can be carried out independently or in conjunction with your usual eye examination. This type of appointment is very useful in diagnosing a number of eye conditions, including:

HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY?

To simplify, we tend to compare your eye to a cake. The retinal image takes a photo of the surface of the retina (the top surface of a cake) whereas the OCT looks at the layers of the retina (like cutting a slice of cake and then being able to see the various layers within, one at a time).
