The future of eyecare has just arrived in our practice
It’s not just your vision we care about, it’s your health too. A comprehensive eye health check isn’t just about your vision and getting a new pair of spectacles or contact lenses, it can reveal early problems or changes in your eye that you may be unaware of. If we can detect any problems earlier, it allows for early treatment and a better outcome for your health.
This month we have invested in the very latest technology, the remarkable Nidek RS-330 Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT for short), which you would normally only expect to find in a hospital eye department. With OCT we can now see beneath the surface of the back of your eye (Retina), which allows us to study your eyes with incredible detail allowing early detection, diagnosis and monitoring of Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Age Related Macular Degeneration, Retinal Detachments and much more.
Also by keeping records of these images for you we can compare them the next time you visit, year on year, which is the very best way to look after your eyes. Having an OCT screening in combination with your normal eye test will allow us to obtain the most detailed information about your overall eye health.
It is a fast, non-contact and pleasant test where you simply sit in front of the instrument where your eye will be scanned within a few seconds.
Take care of your vision and your health. Call us today on 028 9070 5787 to arrange an appointment and experience what OCT can do for your eyes.
