OCT Testing

We now offer a new enhanced sight check using OCT ( Optical Coherance Tomography). This is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to image the different layers that make up the structures at the back and the front of the eye. Our  optometrist will take both a digital photograph and a three dimensional cross sectional scan of your eye . this allows both instant and early diagnosis of a number of common ocular conditions. The scan is painless and non -invasive and gives us an invaluable ongoing record of the health and condition of your eye that we can use for comparative purposes in future eye tests , enabling us to detect even the most subtle changes with every eye test you have .

Conditions that an OCT scan will help with:

  1. Age-Related Macular Degeneration - the leading cause of blindness in the UK.
  2. Diabetes - with over 4 million people now diagnosed in the UK.
  3. Glaucoma - a condition causing damage to the optic nerve.
  4. Vitreous Detachments - a painless condition which can cause blindness.
  5. Macular Holes - a small hole in the part of the retina  which can cause a loss in sharp and detailed central vision.
