OCT Eye Scans
The OCT 3D Eye Scan is an ultrasound scan of your retina, in particular your optic nerve and your macula.
An extension of the standard eye examination, a 3D eye scan allows us to look deeper into the back of the eye and spot eye related issues sooner. It can detect any significant changes to your eyes up to four years earlier than a standard eye examination, and long before you may notice any issues yourself.
The earlier an eye condition is detected, the earlier your treatment commences, with a greater chance of a successful outcome. In many cases, early detection can even prevent a condition from developing at all, maintaining your sight.
For many of our patients, this ground breaking OCT 3D Eye Scan gives them absolute peace of mind when it comes to their vision. The technology is so trusted, that there’s even an OCT eye scan machine installed on the International Space Station to keep astronauts’ eye health in check.
You’ll also be interested to know that we also are one of the few opticians in the country who can carry out a retinal imaging scan through the Optomap. OptomapⓇ ultra-widefield imaging – most tests can only capture 10-15% of your retinal image, but the Optomap sees 80% in one panoramic pass across the surface of your eye. Learn more here.
