Ocular Coherence Tomography
Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a standard part of all eye exams at our practice, and produces a high resolution, 3D image of the retina. Even the earliest stages of AMD can be detected through this single test by assessing swelling of the retina or observing any distortion of the retinal layers.
We use our advanced imaging equipment to to construct a soft of map of the curvature of your cornea, which is exceptionally detailed.
We can take images of the retina in ultra-high resolution, allowing us to spot the tell-tale signs of serious illnesses or developments in that part of the eye.
Senior Exams Are Different
Quite simply, there are eye diseases and conditions which don’t generally occur until after your 50th birthday. Such diseases often sneak into being without any symptoms – like age-related macular degeneration or glaucoma – and can significantly impair your vision. In the worst case, these diseases can cause permanent blindness.
In order to enjoy the next 50 years comfortably and with good vision, book an exam every 12 months and stick to it – early detection is your best weapon against destructive eye conditions.
