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.
