Seeing beneath the surface is essential to the health of your eyes
Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to illustrate the different layers which make up the back of your eye.
For a number of years we have been able to photograph the back of your eye making the record of your ocular health much more accurate. With the new 3D scan we still have the photograph but now we also have a three dimensional cross section of the back of your eye.
The scan is non-invasive, painless, simple and quick. The information it gives us is invaluable picking up the most subtle changes to your retina.
What can the scan check for?
How much does it cost ?
It is highly unusual to find this sort technology outside of an eye hospital but this state of the art TOPCON 3D OCT is now available at Bill Opticians. There is a charge of £49.90 for the OCT scan and this includes a full analysis of the results by one of our fully trained optometrists. OCT screening will safeguard your eye health against potentially serious ocular diseases.
