3D OCT Screening
With certain eye conditions, the faster you act, the more you protect. That's why we recommend OCT screening as part of your regular eye test. It can help us detect sight-threatening conditions up to 5 years before traditional testing methods.
Why have OCT screening?
We can take 3D high definition images of your eyes using the latest equipment. This helps us see more and build a complete picture of your optical health. Images are stored on our computer so from test to test we can compare OCT images and quickly identify any changes.
OCT examinations are painless and non-invasive, nothing touches your eye and it only takes a few moments.
We recommend you have a OCT examination as part of your regular eye test for extra peace of mind.
What is 3D OCT?
Ocular Coherence Tomography is an advanced eye scan, similar to an ultrasound, that uses light (rather than sound waves) to reveal the many layers that make up the back of the eye. It can detect a number of common eye conditions, such as glaucoma, age related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy.
Easy steps to OCT
Book an eye exam with Jean Rigby Opticians asking for OCT.
We will scan your eyes using our 3D OCT camera.
The high resolution images will appear on the screen and are examined by the Optometrist.
The results are then presented and discussed with you by the Optometrist.
