This 3D scanner allows us to view each individual layer of the retina tissue, which is impossible for our optometrist to view via the naked eye. Your scan results will bring peace of mind that your eyes have been examined to the best possible level.
Can I have an OCT Scan?
Yes! An OCT Scan can be conducted on anyone, at any age. The scan will capture a digital photograph of your eyes, whilst using light to illustrate the layers deep within the back of your eye. These images are then cross-referenced with your eye test results to review any areas of concern.
