Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

We are proud to provide OCT imaging as part of our comprehensive eye examinations to get a thorough health screening and baseline to protect your ocular health.

What is OCT? Optical Coherence Tomography is a non-invasive imaging technology that allows us to obtain high-resolution cross-sectional images of the retina. This enables our optometrists to visualize the layers of the retina in detail, aiding in the early detection and management of various eye conditions.

Key Benefits of OCT:

  1. Early Detection: OCT allows us to identify subtle changes in the retina, enabling early detection of conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma.
  2. Precision and Detail: The high-resolution images produced by OCT provide detailed information about the layers of the retina, helping us to create personalized treatment plans.
  3. Monitoring Progress: For patients with certain eye conditions, OCT is invaluable for monitoring changes over time and adjusting treatment plans accordingly.

Conditions Diagnosed and Managed with OCT:

  • Macular Degeneration: Evaluate the health of the macula and detect any signs of age-related macular degeneration.
  • Diabetic Retinopathy: Monitor changes in the retina caused by diabetes, helping to prevent vision loss.
  • Glaucoma: Assess the optic nerve head and retinal nerve fiber layer to aid in the early diagnosis and management of glaucoma.
  • Retinal Disorders: Identify and monitor various retinal disorders, including macular holes, epiretinal membranes, and vitreomacular traction.
