Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Eye Scans

What happens during an oct scan?

OCT is an extremely advanced health check for all ages. It’s very similar to ultrasound but uses light waves instead of sound waves. It shows the Optometrist exactly what is going on beneath the surface of your eye. This information could prove vital and can help prevent problems in the future. The scan is non-invasive, painless, simple and quick and allows us to instantly diagnose a number of common conditions.

The scan uses light rays to takes a detailed 3D image below the surface of your retina (the inner most surface of the eye) giving us in-depth images of the eyes internal structures.

The Eye Examination

An eye examination should be part of everyone’s normal health routine and is an important part of looking after your eyes. You may think of this as just an eye test, but it’s more than a simple test of your sight. Your optometrist is able to check your eye health and other general health issues during an eye examination and give advice.

Here are some important reasons to have a regular eye examination and look after your eyes:
•It can detect early signs of eye conditions before you notice them.
•It can also detect other general health problems.
•Good vision helps you work and play safely and comfortably. It leads to a better quality of life.
•Your eyes are the only pair you’ve got. If you lose your eyesight it may never be replaced.
•Unlike your teeth, your eyes do not usually hurt if there is something wrong.

Optomap is saving our patients’ sight!

Our 60 year old patient attended for her eye exam because she had broken her reading glasses. She was not having any symptoms. The colour Optomap scan detected that an area of the retina in her left eye was detached and the autoflorescence (AF) Optomap scan showed an area of fluid underneath the retina! She was sent urgently to the eye clinic and received emergency laser treatment the next day! If she had not had treatment she could have lost the sight in her...
