    An OCT scan is a comprehensive solution for early detection of the major back-of-the-eye diseases

    Utilising the very latest in eye scan technologies called Optical Coherence Tomography the OCT Scan provides a non-invasive imaging method allowing detailed visualisation beneath the retinal surface to detect any abnormalities in the different retinal layers, to an almost cellular level, and monitor any changes over time.

    Why should I consider the scan?

    OCT Scanning allows us to detect any abnormalities in the different retinal layers, analyse these and monitor any changes over time. Meaning safer care and better preservation of sight.

    What can I expect from the OCT Scan?

    The scan itself takes only a matter of minutes. It is totally non-invasive, so nothing touches your eye so it’s pain/discomfort free! You will be asked to place your chin on the rest and look at a light, which may be moved according to the area scanned. The 2D & 3D HD-Scans are analysed and interpreted by specialised on board clinical diagnostic software. If necessary, further analysis can be undertaken by our Optometrist.

    Regular monitoring is key to the process as changes in the back of the eye often happen very subtly and slowly– without causing any symptoms. As such the many retinal layers should be monitored periodically with check-up scans to detect any changes from your initial base line exam.

    Seeing through the Retina

    Traditional examination of the back of the eye (the retina) involved looking for signs of change on the surface. Thanks to our OCT we can see through the surface and examine all the layers of the retina. Being able to identify and monitor abnormality within these layers is essential for early detection and diagnosis of some of the major causes of visual impairment and blindness; meaning treatments can be made available at the earliest possible moment.
