In-house OCT Scans

Optical Coherence Tomography

Greg Sly Optometry is committed to providing you with the highest standard of eye care available. With this in mind, we have recently installed the very latest technology to include Optical Coherence Tomography. This allows us to take 3-dimensional scans of the back and front of your eyes, rather like an MRI scanner does for the rest of the body.

This is one of the most advanced diagnostic tools available. An OCT scan is comfortable, and non-invasive. The images are captured in seconds, using optical scanning and flash photography, without the need to come into contact with your eyes.

The images show exceptional detail and allow us to compare your eyes over time, showing changes that would be impossible to detect without this revolutionary new equipment.

With OCT we can for the first time look beneath the surface of the retina at the layers below. We can microscopically magnify them and ensure that they are healthy. At the same time a detailed retinal photograph is taken. By measuring and monitoring the key layers within the back of the eye we can pick up abnormal changes which would not otherwise become apparent until much later in the development of a disease.

What are the Benefits?
We can look beneath the retinal surface and detect:

  • Changes too small to be seen by other methods.
  • Eye diseases such as Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, and Diabetic Retinopathy may be detected and treatment started at a much earlier stage, helping to preserve your sight. We can keep a permanent record, so small changes can be regularly monitored.
  • Should referral be required, we are able to include photographs and diagnostic levels of detail. For the first time you can see and understand any changes taking place.

Who should have OCT?
Everyone who wants the best available eye care, particularly:

  • Those over 40 years
  • Anyone with a family history of eye problems
  • Diabetics and smokers
  • Anyone with health problems, or who is taking medication that may affect the eyes
  • Anyone who has had an abnormality detected using any other method
  • Anyone with particular concerns regarding their vision, or eye health.
