Always ahead of the rest, Gill Opticians has boasted OCT as part of our standard eye examination since 2013. OCT is the latest technology developed for Ophthalmologists and Optical practices to aid in the diagnosis and monitoring of visual disturbances and disease.
OCT is capable of scanning beyond the retina giving us a layer by layer view of the back of the eye important for diagnosis of macular degeneration and other degenerative diseases.
Gill Opticians is proud to be able to offer this new state-of-the-art retinal scan device to our high-tech practice. We take eyecare seriously and constantly strive to be at the top of our game.
OCT can aid in the detection of:
Diabetes, Glaucoma, ARMD(age related macular degeneration), wet macular degeneration, dry macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusion, closed angle glaucoma, detached retina, diabetic retinopathy, eye tumours, retinal tears, macular holes, vitreous detachment, cotton wool spotting, general ocular health monitoring, and many more pathologies.
