Optical Coherence Tomography Scanner (OCT)

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) uses light waves to create detailed images of underlying retinal structures. Using this scanner, doctors can more specifically diagnose, treat and manage glaucoma and retinal diseases including diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.

Why we’ve invested in OCT:

  • The advanced OCT technology provides detailed images of the retina not observable by any other means.
  • This non-contact, non-invasive tool can lead to earlier confirmation of damage so doctors can provide earlier treatment.
  • The scanner produces high-resolution (10 times greater resolution than any other technique available), cross-sectional images of the retina.
  • This equipment does not require injections or exposure to painful, high-intensity light, which means improved patient comfort and safety.
