An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology. We are using the latest technology OCT equipment from Zeiss.
Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye.
With an OCT scan, we are provided with colour-coded, cross-sectional images of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Retinal Detachment and Diabetic Retinopathy.
An OCT scan is a non-invasive, painless test. It is performed in about 10 minutes.
