imageWe are at the forefront of the technological revolution. We were among the first in Britain to install and use the OCT (Ocular Coherence Tomography)

What is OCT?

OCT - Ocular Coherence Tomography - 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 that make up the back of your eye. We also capture a digital photograph of the surface of your eye to cross-reference areas of concern.

Using a Topcon state-of-the-art 3D OCT camera, your optometrist will take both a digital photograph and a three dimensional cross sectional scan of the back of your eye in one sitting. This allows us to instantly diagnose a number of common conditions. The scan is non-invasive, painless, simple and quick. What's more, the software can automatically detect even the most subtle changes to the retina with every eye test you take. This gives you an invaluable ongoing record of the health and condition of your eyes.

Common conditions identified through regular OCT screening include:

  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  • Glaucoma
  • At risk of glaucoma
  • Macular holes
  • Viterous detachments
  • Diabetes
  • Vitreous floaters

OCT screening will safeguard your eye health

The health of your eyes matters to you and it matters to us too, which is why we are offering OCT to all our patients.

What does OCT cost?

There may be an additional charge for the OCT scan, but the benefits are obvious. So you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your eyes are in great condition. All scans are included in our Loyalty Plan plan.
