Latest - Optical Coherence Tomography now in store

As part of our commitment to investing in the most up to date technology we can now offer you the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) experience as part of your Premium Eye Examination. This allows us to study your eyes with incredible detail allowing early detection of a wide range of conditions and ensuring optimum eye care.

What is the OCT experience?
OCT is a non-invasive imaging technique which uses light waves to take cross section images of the Retina. OCT goes beyond and deeper than your usual Fundus Imaging examination, allowing us to examine and see the layers beneath the surface of the back of your eye. 

Why can it benefit me?
Just because everything seems normal, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have an OCT scan. OCT’s use advanced imaging technology to detect abnormalities at an incredibly early. OCT is a preventative tool allowing early detection, diagnosis and monitoring of Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Age Related Macular Degeneration, Retinal Detachments and much more.

Does it hurt?
No. Your OCT examination is quick and painless, nothing touches your eye at all. It takes 1-2 seconds for the actual scan after which time your images will be assessed by your optometrist.
