WHAT IS AN OCT?

OCT - Optical Coherence Tomography - is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. It is similar to ultrasound, but OCT uses light 

rather than sound waves to image the very many different layers that make up the structures at the front and the back of the eye.

The OCT machine captures both a photograph and a cross section scan of the eye at the same time and is invaluable in detecting serious problems years before we used to be able to identify them.

 

We can store the images and look back at them every time carry out an eye examination and we can send them to specialist ophthalmic surgeons should we need to refer patients to them.
