OCT Scans: A Detailed Evaluation of Your Eye Health

An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology. With the OCT your eye doctor is able to evaluate the health of the optic nerve & retina conditions in order to discover the earliest signs of eye disease & keep your eyes healthy. Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye.woman machine

A scanning laser used to analyze the layers of the retina and optic nerve for any signs of eye disease, similar to an CT scan of the eye. It works using light without radiation, and is essential for early diagnosis of glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinal disease.

With an OCT scan, doctors are provided with color-coded, cross-sectional images of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and diabetic retinopathy.

An OCT scan is a noninvasive, painless test. It is performed in about 10 minutes right in our office.
