Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) shows us more about the health of your eyes than we could ever learn just by looking.

OCT allows us to actually see the retina layer by microscopic layer with a resolution of 5 microns.

OCT is a computerized imaging technique that uses laser light to make a 3-D image of the retina. It is a patient friendly non-contact, non-invasive eye scan that can usually be completed in a few minutes.

OCT allows us to “see” abnormalities that are not apparent on regular clinical examination.

OCT provides remarkably detailed information about the retina. This is of profound importance in determining the precise diagnosis of visual problems and in helping us guide patients on the treatment options possible.
