Swept Source Ocular Coherence Tomography at Hing Opticians
Swept Source OCT is the latest development in screening and diagnosing potentially serious conditions that can affect your eyesight and your overall well being.
Using a state of the art Swept Source 3D OCT camera, we will take a digital photograph and a extremely detailed three dimensional cross sectional scan of the back of your eye. This allows us to instantly diagnose a number of common conditions. The scan is non-invasive, painless, simple and quick. The software used can automatically detect even the most subtle changes to the retina. This also enables us to give you an invaluable ongoing record of the health and condition of your eyes.
What can an OCT scan check for?
Common conditions identified through regular OCT screening include:
- Age-related macular degeneration
- Macular holes
- Vitreous detachments
The health of your eyes matters to you and it matters to us too which is why we are offering OCT scans to all of our patients.
