Want to avoid long hospital waiting lists?
Here at Barrett Opticians we are delighted to announce that we now offer OCT screening!
So..what is OCT? Optical Coherence Tomography – is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to image the different layers that make up the structures at the front and back of your eye. The OCT machine captures both a photograph and a cross-sectional scan of the eye at the same time.
OCT allows both instant and early diagnosis of a number of common conditions. the scan is non-invasive, painless, simple and quick! It gives an invaluable ongoing record of the health and condition of the eyes.
What can the scan check for?
Common conditions such as:
1. Age-related macular degeneration
4. Vitreousor Retinal detachments
5. Macular holes
