Livertons install the latest technology.

Liverton Opticians have recently installed the latest OCT (optical coherence tomography) technology.

OCT is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye.

With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing your ophthalmologist to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with the diagnosis and provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and retinal diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.

Not all opticians provide this service and, where it is available, often make high additional charges. At Liverton Opticians we consider this to be of paramount importance in monitoring the health of your eyes and include the test in our standard eye examination at no additional cost to you.
