OCT Scans

Diagnosing problems before it threatens your sight is our priority, with help from our OCT scanner.

At Optomeyes Eyecare, using a state of the art OCT scanner means that we can view up to 80% of your eye and are able to detect conditions earlier than other opticians. An OCT scanner is an advanced piece of technology that allows us to take quick and painless images of the parts of your eye that can’t be seen in a standard eye examination. A series of snapshots are taken of your retina (and other parts of the back of your eye) before being combined to create a 3D, cross sectional view for our specialists to examine. We look at the images thoroughly to check for the smallest indication of any potential problems, and follow up where necessary.

OCT images have up to 25 times better resolution than those produced by any
other imaging technology. This means that not only are the images clear enough
to identify eye conditions, but they can also help reveal health problems such as
diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer too. Your health is of vital importance and we take all precautions we can to discover problems as early as possible.

It’s important to remember that the earlier eye and health conditions are diagnosed, the more likely effective treatment is. For that reason we strongly recommend that you have your eyes scanned by the OCT annually, especially if you are over 40, and therefore at a higher risk of developing certain eye diseases.
