Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test. OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina.
With OCT, your optometrist can see each of the retina’s distinctive layers. This allows us to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with diagnosis. They also allow us to monitor conditions like glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and other conditions of the retina.
An OCT scan is quick, easy and the results are immediate. We use our equipment room, also with level access to house the OCT machine along with our peripheral vision testing device for Visual Fields.
A brief video introducing the equipment and its benefits has been produced by Eye TV. View it here:
