OCT Technology

OCT – Optical Coherence Tomography – is an advanced, completely painless, eye scan.  It takes only a few seconds to capture the scan, during which no contact is made with your eyes.  OCT is similar to ultrasound, except that it uses light instead of sound to capture a cross-sectional scan of the layers of the back of your eye.  This technology not only creates a permanent record of your eye health, including the retina, optic nerve, macula (area of centre vision) and blood vessels, it also allows for earlier detection of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), diabetic eye changes, and glaucoma, among many other eye diseases.  The scan from this amazing technology is transferred instantly to a computer monitor in the examination room, allowing the doctor to review and discuss it with you at the time of your appointment.
