OCT is an advanced eye scan available to all ages. The scan produces 3D images of the layers of the retina providing an invaluable on-going record of the health and condition of your eyes with the 3D images being stored on file for future comparison.
The eye exam and OCT scan will provide a more extensive health assessment and offers peace of mind regarding any threats to your health or vision. The OCT scan also allows us to store baseline data for future comparison.
As professional Opticians we would recommend everyone to take advantage of the OCT scan to re-assure them that their eyes are in perfect health. The OCT scan and high resolution 3D images are not currently part of the NHS eye examination and a small charge of £25 is applicable, but the benefits are obvious.
OCT scans are currently available within practice.
