Enhanced OCT 3D Scan
What is OCT?
Ocular Coherence Tomography is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to illustrate the different layers that make up the back of the eye. Our 3D OCT also captures a digital photograph of the surface of the eye at the same time, and this can then be cross referenced with any areas of concern.
Our new 3D OCT takes 128 individual scans of the back of the eye. These scans are effectively cross-sections through the retina and show up structures of the back of the eye in incredibly fine detail.
With an OCT eye health scan, we can EARLY detect numerous diseases such as diabetes, glaucoma, age related macular degeneration and much more...
What does it involve?
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a very detailed non-contact eye scan. OCT scanning produces high resolution cross-section images of the back of the eye (the retina). It is quick and painless, nothing touches your eye at all.
Who should have it done?
OCT is used extensively to investigate, monitor and diagnose conditions such as age related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, macular holes and many others. If you suffer from any of these or are ‘at risk’ of these due to family history or other factors then you should consider OCT. However, we truly believe that OCT should be carried out on all our clients. All our eyes are unique meaning all our eyes look a little different.
How do I get it done?
When you book your eye test mention it to our receptionist and they will make sure we have adequate time to complete this as well as your eye examination.
The cost of an OCT scan is £25.
