OCT stands for Ocular Coherence Tomography and is a three dimensional scan that allows us to build a highly detailed image of the back of the eye. At F G Brown & Associates, in Stowmarket, we offer OCT as part of our advanced eye-sight tests. Read more about OCT below or book an appointment now.
WHAT IS AN OCT SCAN?
OCT stands for ocular coherence tomography, which essentially means building a highly detailed image of the back of the eye that can be viewed in three dimensions.
Our optometrists use the OCT scanner to create an image of the back of your eye, allowing them to pick up any issues or abnormalities with an exceptional level of accuracy. An OCT scan is a simple and pain-free procedure and produces an image with a significantly higher resolution than any other optical imaging technology.
A THOROUGH TEST
USING OCULAR COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY
The OCT scan gives us much more information that a standard eye exam and we can use this information to help you look after your eye health.
Eye conditions that can be easily identified and monitored through OCT scanning include macular degeneration, glaucoma and retinal detachment. All of these conditions are serious and can lead to sight loss and even blindness if not treated swiftly. OCT scanning is also effective in diagnosing a range of other less severe eye health and vision related conditions.
FOR AN OCT TEST?
It’s a worrying fact that the majority of eye health problems have no symptoms, which means that you could already be developing a condition without even being aware of it. It’s for this reason that regular eye exams are so important, and that early diagnosis of any issue is crucial to ensure swift and effective treatment.
