Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
OCT is another way we provide a comprehensive test in the Sydney CBD area to our patients to detect the early signs of any eye conditions before they affect your eyesight.
The OCT is a diagnostic imaging device that takes a cross-sectional image of the retina (the inner back surface of the eye). Our highly trained optometrists will detect the early signs of retinal disease, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
Anterior Segment OCT
We also perform OCT on the front segment of the eye including the cornea (clear front cover of the eye), the iris (coloured circle of the eye), and the lens of the eye (which is housed just behind the iris and pupil).
This high resolution imaging system is used to accurately measure corneal thickness prior to and following laser vision correction. It gives the most detailed cross-sectional view of the cornea, which is highly useful in monitoring conditions related to the front of the eye such as keratoconus.
