Using the RETINA SCAN DUO™ 2 OCT
We have invested in the very latest technology.
OCT is an innovative imaging technique used to obtain high resolution 3D images of your retina. Our state of the art OCT imaging system provides exquisite details of retinal microstructures to assist in early detection & monitoring of various retinal diseases including 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 extremely useful.
This technology monitors and scans the human retina, which is a thin and sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. This complex structure supplies the retina with blood. Everyone's retina is different - indeed, a set of identical twins do not share similar patterns. Sometimes, retinal patterns may be altered in the cases of diabetes, glaucoma or other retina degenerative disorders.
The scanner is 100% designed to give professionals an instant indication of eye health. It's a quick and comfortable non-invasive treatment for the patient. We get to see an amazing 3-D illustration of your eye with the OCT.
Thanks to the additional lens integrated to the instrument, taking a picture of the front of the eye is also possible.
The structures that can be observed in this mode are the external parts such as eyelids, eyelashes, lachrymal duct, cornea, iris, sclera.
Retinal screeners that digitally scan the eyes are very accurate and are one small step everyone can take to not only check-up on the health of their eyes, but indeed their overall health as high blood pressure and diabetes can be picked up by the optometrist using these instruments.
When you consider how precious our health is, and our sight, it's a logical step to enhance your eye exam with it.
