Stay Ahead of Eye Problems


Do you have a family history of glaucoma, macular degeneration, or similar eye problems? Are you currently experiencing an ongoing issue? Or do you simply want to ensure the best possible care for your eyes, stay on top of your eye health, and ensure that any unexpected issues are caught and treated at the earliest opportunity?
If so, our OCT Scan is ideal for you. The OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) Scan provides an exceptionally detailed view of your eye health, scanning and mapping the interior of your eye in a comfortable and non-invasive manner. It is crucial for the early detection and diagnosis of various eye conditions, as well as for monitoring and managing ongoing issues as effectively as possible.
The scan is straightforward, painless, and screens for potentially serious eye conditions like glaucoma, diabetes, age-related macular degeneration, vitreous detachments, among others.



What is OCT?


Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a sophisticated eye scanning procedure suitable for individuals of all ages. Like ultrasound, OCT employs light instead of sound waves to illustrate the various layers constituting the rear portion of the eye. This specific 3D OCT device simultaneously takes a digital image of the eye's interior surface, allowing any areas of concern detected by the scan to be cross-referenced with the traditional view of the eye's back as observed by your optometrist.



In simpler terms, observing an iced cake before slicing it doesn't reveal whether it has layers of jam, cream, or chocolate, nor if it's lumpy or smooth. Similarly, this innovative NON-INVASIVE technology enables your optometrist to view not only the surface of your eye's retina (akin to the top of the cake) but also a three-dimensional image of the underlying layers.


Locating and identifying eye conditions that affect the sub-surface layers has never been more straightforward. Your optometrist can examine the images on a computer screen and identify any areas of concern.

With this technology, your optometrist can diagnose, manage, or refer you for further treatment with greater confidence. For most patients, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) offers substantial reassurance about the health of their eye's deeper layers.




Dedicated to delivering superior eye care, Openshaw Opticians now offers the option of including a state-of-the-art diagnostic tool with your eye examination. While an additional fee for the OCT scan may apply, the advantages are clear: it offers the assurance that comes with knowing your eyes are thoroughly checked.


Remember to inquire about the OCT scan when scheduling your upcoming eye examination.
