Greg Sly Bellarine Eyecare 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:
