Optical Coherence Tomography

Posted on July 7, 2015 · Posted in Global Copy

As well as Retinal Photography, at our Addlestone, Ashford, Ascot and Teddington practices, we now have 3D OCT scanning available. This scans your eye in just a few seconds and gives us a 3D cross-sectional image of the deeper layers of your eyes. This helps us detect the early signs of many eye conditions including Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma.
