The newest addition to their services is their new OCT machine. OCT which stands for Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test. OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. Like 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.
OCT is useful in recognising many eye conditions, including:
- Macular hole
- Macular pucker
- Macular edema
- Age-related macular degeneration
- Gentral serous retinopathy
- Diabetic retinopathy.
