OCT Scan

Additional to all the standard tests we have the very latest optical coherence tomography (OCT) equipment at our practice.

 

This allows us to acquire extremely detailed 3D images of various important structures such as the optic nerve and the macular area. Once acquired, we can then take follow-up scans at future appointments to monitor potential changes.

One step ahead

OCT imaging has become a mainstay of disease detection and provides much more information than regular 2D retinal photography which we still use (at no extra cost) where required.

 

OCT imaging does incur an extra charge as this is not covered by the NHS fee or by the normal private sight test fee. Please ask your optometrist about this technology when you have your eye test or mention it when booking online or with our reception team.
