Liverton Opticians include an http://balacatering.com/https: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) with both our private eye exams and NHS exams at no extra cost. We feel that everyone should benefit from the best care that we can provide.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) gives us a three-dimensional, realistic depiction of retina and macula, the area of sharpest vision.
From this we receive important data about the retina and probable damage of vitreous humor, optic nerve, retina and surrounding tissue like retinal pigment epithelium and choroid in a resolution similar to that of microscopes.
An Optical Coherence Tomography can highlight a defect before a patient even presents any symptoms.
The OCT can pick up on the following:
Disorders of the papillae (e.g. Glaucoma)
Changes of blood vessels
directory OUR OCT SCANS ARE INCLUDED IN BOTH OUR PRIVATE AND NHS EXAMS
We feel that this service benefits both our patients and ourselves, therefore, we are dedicated to ensuring all patients receive the best eye care available.
