We have recently invested in an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomographer) in out St Mellons practice which means that we can offer hospital level technology as part of your routine eye examination.
OCT is a non-invasive, painless and fast imaging test. OCT uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina. With OCT, your optometrist or ophthalmologist can see each of the retina’s distinctive layers and changes to them.
Having an OCT means that we can diagnose diseases like macular degeneration and glaucoma much sooner and more accurately than we otherwise could and having an OCT while your eyes are healthy gives us a baseline to compare to if ever there were a problem.
To book your OCT scan please contact the St Mellons practice and book in.
