OCT Scans

Don’t assume just because your eyes feel ok that they are ok.

OCT-3D Eye Scan

As part of our commitment to give you the best eye care we have a state of the art OCT-3D Eye Scanner. This allows us to detect eye diseases at the earliest possible stage. The process is completely painless, quick and is carried out on all our patients as part of the GOLD EYE EXAMINATION.

Our 3D OCT eye scanner uses a low powered light to scan the back of your eye. During your normal eye examination, your optometrist can only see the top layer of your retina. The 3D OCT scan allows viewing of the deeper layers of retinal tissues. It is in these deeper layers that the signs of macula degeneration, diabetes, macula holes etc. can be first seen. The 3D OCT scan allows for early detection and therefore earlier treatment of these conditions (where appropriate). This 3D OCT scan is appropriate at any age if recommended by your optometrist.

Glaucoma Detection/Monitoring

By measuring the thickness of the nerve fibre layers, the OCT scan allows us to see the damaging effects of glaucoma much sooner than standard glaucoma checks including visual fields and pressure checks. It is also very helpful in monitoring glaucoma if you have been diagnosed with the disease.

Glaucoma is a manageable condition, so early diagnosis is essential to help save your sight. We recommend this test for all of our patients over 40. You do not have to have any family history of eye problems to suffer from glaucoma. Glaucoma does not hurt or affect your vision in the early stages so don’t assume just because your eyes feel ok that they are ok.

Macular Degeneration

Growing old leads to a growing number of health problems, including those that challenge our ability to see. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease that — until recently — robbed the elderly of the ability to read, drive and see the faces of their loved ones.

Thanks to our OCT, we can catch the disease before vision is lost. And with the aid of new drugs, AMD can be stopped in its tracks.

A digital 3D retinal image of the retina gives a permanent record which can be compared with other pictures taken on previous and future visits. This makes it much easier to detect small changes in the macula. A picture is a far more detailed record than could ever be described in written words. We highly recommend an OCT Scan for all patients at risk of macular degeneration.
