At Dickens Eye Clinic we are always looking to offer the most advanced and thorough Eye Examination possible. We continually invest in cutting-edge technology and are extremely proud to provide a revolutionary piece of diagnostic equipment known as 3D Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).
WHY HAVE OCT?
OCT enables us to scan your retina and detect early signs of a number of conditions including: glaucoma, diabetes, age-related macular degeneration, vitreous detachment and many more. It can even help us monitor various changes due to high blood pressure, corneal disorders and floaters. By detecting these conditions at an early stage we can reduce the chance of your eyesight being permanently affected.
WHO’S IT FOR?
We recommend all patients have regular OCT eye scans as part of their eye examination. This allows early detection to any small changes in your eyes and let’s us reduce the risk to your sight.
The scan is fast, comfortable and is suitable for all patients including children. It is particularly beneficial for patients with a family history of Glaucoma and those worried about floaters and Macular Degeneration.
