With certain eye conditions, the faster you act, the more you protect.
That’s why we recommend OCT as part of your regular eye test in Perivale. It can help us detect sight-threatening issues up to 5 years before traditional testing methods, and many years before you notice any change in your vision yourself.
What is OCT?
Optical Coherence Tomography technology enables us to see beyond the retinal surface into the tissue behind. This means we can spot abnormalities up to 5 years before a traditional test.
It can spot early signs of:
Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Diabetes – by detecting Diabetic Retinopathy
The sooner we detect them, the sooner we can help you treat them.
The images generated by the OCT are stored on your file so we can compare photos from year to year to spot even the smallest of changes in your eyes.
