OCT Eye Health Scan

As a progressive independent opticians, dedicated to providing the highest level of eyecare, we are continually investing in our practice. Our latest acquisition is a hospital-grade Optical Coherence Tomography Scanner (OCT). OCT uses cutting edge technology to give 3D scans and images of parts of the retina, macula and optic nerve which are not otherwise visible.

We strongly recommend OCT to all our clients over 30, it allows your optometrist to confirm that your eyes are healthy. Scans can be repeated over time for comparison allowing earlier detection and treatment of potentially sight threatening conditions. Theze include:

  • glaucoma
  • diabetic retinopathy
  • age-related macular degeneration
  • macular hole
  • detached retina

OCT scan can help detect glaucoma up to four years earlier than traditional methods. This technology is not currently funded by the NHS, we charge £20 in addition to your normal eye examination fee.
