Recent advances in technology have allowed us to detect and diagnose eye diseases at a much earlier stage than before. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) uses the latest technology to perform a non-invasive 3D scan of the different structures of the eye. It creates a high resolution cross-sectional scan through various sections of the eye which are crucial in providing clear vision and the ability to see.
OCT scans are essential in detecting and monitoring various diseases such as Glaucoma and Macular degeneration. OCT scans are also crucial for patients who take certain medications, such as Plaquenil, which are known to have side effects to different parts of the eye. We work together with your general practitioner in order to monitor the health of your eyes so that we can take appropriate action before your vision is affected.
