3D OCT Screening
Seeing beneath the surface is essential for the health of your eyes.
In other words, if you are looking at an iced cake before it has been sliced, you don’t know if it contains jam, cream or chocolate layers; equally if it’s lumpy or smooth. With this unique NON-INVASIVE technology your optometrist is able to see both the surface of the back of your eye (the top of the cake) and a three-dimensional image of the layers that are beneath the surface.
Never before has it been easier to locate and identify eye conditions that affect the layers below the surface. Your optometrist can then review the images on a PC screen and pinpoint areas of concern.
Using this machine, your optometrist can more confidently diagnose, manage or refer you to an eye doctor for further treatment, should this be required. For the majority of patients, OCT provides significant reassurance that the deeper layers of their eye are healthy.

Make sure that when booking your next eye test, you ask about an OCT scan.
