Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a type of imaging system that allows your optometrist to assess the health of your retinas. Think of an OCT scan like an ultrasound, but instead of using sound, the OCT uses light waves to capture cross-sectional images of your retina.
It can help detect symptoms of diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, diabetic macular edema, or age-related macular degeneration.
Retinal Photography is an innovative tool used by optometrists to assess the health of your retinas.
In less than half of a second, this non-invasive imaging system can capture highly detailed images of your retina, allowing your optometrist to detect signs of diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, or optic nerve abnormalities.
