Optical Coherence Tomography

 

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section scans of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye.

With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing your us to map and measure the thickness of these layers. These measurements help with diagnosis and provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and retinal diseases, such as age related macular degeneration (ARMD or AMD) and diabetic eye disease.

An OCT exam will only be necessary once a full eye examination has been carried out and our optometrist advises this further examination is necessary, we also offer OCT exams to assist with our ophthalmology colleagues in follow up procedures.
