This uses the latest 3D scanning technology for in depth examination of the macular and optic nerve. This examination is particularly relevant for patients with a family history of age related macular degeneration (AMD), those at risk of developing glaucoma and those diagnosed with either condition in order to monitor disease progression.
OCT scans give us the ability to look beyond the retinal surface into the sub retinal layers and presents us with diagnostic opportunities not seen before. Digital Retinal Photography technology takes a ‘wide screen’ image of the retina, allowing the optometrist to see a detailed coloured image of the retina. These tests provide the optometrist with the ability to detect many eye diseases much earlier, such as AMD, Glaucoma, Diabetes and more.
