3D Optical Coherence Tomography (3D OCT)

Major medical conditions can be found by
simply examining your eyes

Introduction

Did you know that a number of major medical conditions can be
detected simply by examining your eyes?

Our advanced diagnostic equipment gives you the peace of mind
that comes from knowing your eyes are healthy.

A 3D OCT scan allows early detection of conditions including:

3D-OCT

What is 3D OCT?

Ocular Coherence Tomography is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages.

The 3D OCT scan is similar to an ultrasound, but uses light waves, rather than sound waves, to reveal the many layers that make up the back of your eyes.

The scan captures a digital photograph of the inner surface of your eyes.

After analysing the photograph, your optometrist can cross reference any areas of concern using the classic view of the back of your eyes.

Using the 3D OCT, abnormalities can be detected up to five years sooner than using a traditional eye test.

Why should I have a 3D OCT scan?

Who should have a 3D OCT scan?

  1. Your optometrist recommends everyone to have a 3D OCT scan.
  2. Early detection and treatment minimises the risk of sight loss caused by retinal disease.

What happens to my images?

  1. Your images will be stored with your record.
  2. Every time you have a new scan we compare it to the previous ones to look for any subtle changes. This means your optometrist will see even the smallest changes before they become noticeable to you.

What happens during my scan?

1. You place your chin on the chin rest of the device

2. The device will take numerous scans of your eyes

3. Nothing will touch your eyes and the scan only takes a few seconds

4. Your optometrist will interpret and discuss your results with you.
