Optical coherence tomography (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 our optometrist to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with early detection, diagnosis and treatment guidance for retinal disease and conditions, including age-related macular degeneration, and glaucoma among others.
The Optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging system helps us to make informed decisions about your eye health and overall well-being.
Traditional methods of viewing the retina can be effective, but are carried out manually without any digital record. The Optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging system captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image. Traditional methods typically reveal only 10-15% of your retinal at one time.
The unique Optomap ultra-wide view enhances Mr Batham’s ability to detect even the earliest signs of disease that appear on your retina. Seeing most of the retina at once allows him the time to review your images and to educate you about your eye health.
