OCULAR COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY - OCT
It is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. Like ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to illustrate the different layers that make up the back of your eye.
The OCT machine captures both a fundus photograph and a cross-sectional scan of the back of the eye at the same time.
What can the scan check for?
Common conditions identified through regular OCT screening include:
1. Age-related macular degeneration
4. Macular holes
5. Vitreous detachments
