An optical coherence tomography scan can help you to achieve a much more detailed view of patients’ eye health, by allowing you to see the various layers inside the eye. OCT scans are a non-invasive imaging technique, and can help you to see the thickness of the layers. This could help you to better detect eye conditions much earlier, such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration.
An OCT scan is separate to an eye examination, and is recommended for people aged 25 or over or if patients have a family history of eye disease. Optical coherence tomography technology is quickly becoming adopted by practices up and down the country, making it an essential piece of equipment for your independent practice.
