Optical Coherence Topography on the North Shore

We know how important it is to keep investing in new equipment so we can offer you the latest diagnostic tools. We have recently purchased an OCT(Optical Coherence tomography) to help in the early detection of some eye conditions. It takes a detailed 3D image below the surface of your retina giving us a more detailed picture of your eye health.
Your Optometrist may suggest this extra test for you during your routine eye examination.

We can observe and digitally photograph the structures of the eye, but Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) allows us to ‘see under the surface’.  It is a non-invasive technology that allows us to visualise cross-sectional and three-dimensional views of the retina and anterior segment of the eye. This enables us to diagnose glaucoma and retinal diseases (including macular degeneration and disease) and to monitor the effectiveness of treatment.

The data provided by OCT is similar to that provided by ultrasound examination but with some advantages – OCT has significantly higher resolution.

Since its discovery and integration into clinical medicine, OCT has become an important tool in ophthalmology and now optometry. Zeiss head the field of premium optics. We are pleased to be able to offer that Zeiss level of quality in diagnostic technology with our Zeiss OCT.
