Your Eyes, Our Care

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

One of the most important tools to detect changes that aren't visible to the naked eye.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye.

It has become one of the most important tools to detect changes in the macular that isn’t visible to the naked eye.

octWith an OCT exam, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing for your Optometrist to monitor changes in thickness.

In addition, an OCT is often used to evaluate changes to the neurons supplying the optic nerve. These measurements help with the diagnosis and provide treatment guidance for glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease and high risk medications such as Plaquenil.
