Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
We have Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scans in both locations. This technology uses light waves (with micron resolution) to view the layers of the retina and optic nerve in cross-section. This allows the doctor to view areas that they are unable to see with routine methods. This can aid optometrists in detecting hidden problems and accurately detect and monitor many eye conditions such as age related macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, macular holes, and diabetic macular edema. All patients can benefit from these scans as they provide detailed baseline data on the macula and optic nerve which can be used to compare to in the future. This greatly aids in detecting any small changes.
