OCT Retinal Scan
An Optical Coherence Tomography scan (commonly referred to as an OCT scan) is the latest advancement in imaging technology.
Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic technique employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures
of the structural layers of the back of the eye.
A scanning laser used to analyze the layers of the retina and optic nerve for any signs of eye disease, similar to a CT scan of
the eye. It works using light without radiation, and is essential for early diagnosis of glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinal disease.
With an OCT scan, doctors are provided with color-coded, cross-sectional images of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection
and treatment of eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachment and diabetic detinopathy.
An OCT scan is a noninvasive, painless test. It is performed in about 5 minutes right in our office. Feel free to contact our office to
