An OCT allows the user to take a scan similar to an ultrasound, or a cross section of the eye. This is particularly useful when managing or screening for Glaucoma or Macular Degeneration but is also often used in diabetics.
Other symptoms that may require the use of such advanced technology is, a sudden loss of vision, flashes and floaters or head trauma.
We have recently upgraded our OCT to an industry leading 3D widefield machine. This has expanded our ability to detect and monitor abnormalities within your eye.
