OCT / Enhanced Eye Examination

We also provide and enhanced examination which includes an OCT scan This looks at the health of the eyes in a lot greater detail and can help determine certain eye conditions. By having an OCT scan, this allows us to get a ‘baseline data’ for each patient. The software used can detect even the most subtle changes to the retina therefore providing us with an invaluable ongoing record of the health and condition of your eyes. The scan lets us look in so much more detail than we could have achieved in the past, as it is looking underneath the surface into deeper layers of the eye.

What is OCT?

This is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. It is a non-invasive, non-contact imaging technique that allows the optometrist to gain enhanced information about the health of your eyes. Like an ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to image the different layers that make up the structures at the front and back of the eye. The OCT captures both a photograph and a cross-sectional scan of the eye at the same time. Scans are safe, non-invasive and let us see microscopic detail of the eye.

If you have a family history of certain eye conditions such a Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration this can be particularly useful in early detection.

OCT is not part of a standard eye examination and is offered at an additional charge.
