3D – OCT now avaliable at Stratton & Stratton Opticians
Seeing beneath the surface is essential to the health of your eyes
Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to illustrate the different layers which make up the back of your eye.
For a number of years we have been able to photograph the back of your eye making the record of your ocular health much more accurate. With the new 3D scan we still have the photograph but now we also have a three dimensional cross section of the back of your eye.
The scan is non-invasive, painless, simple and quick. The information it gives us is invaluable picking up the most subtle changes to your retina.
What can the scan check for?
Glaucoma amd macular holes, retinal detachment, vitreous detachment as well as retinal damage and early stages of diabetes.
