Optical CT , or Ocular Coherence Tomography Scanner deals with micrometer resolution when performing eye exams. This optical scanner carries out incredibly fine imaging to help us establish how healthy the eyes are. We invest in this technology in line with cutting edge patient management philosophy.
Your Eyes are small , and structures making them up even smaller. To appreciate the micrometer (um) scale of this technology see the video. Note 5-10um, micrometer size of examined sample.
Tell me more.
As you may already be aware early disease detection and treatment yields better visual outcome for you. This applies to all fields of medical sciences, not just the eyes.
Our doctors believe Optical CT should be considered as part of any eye health assessment.
It constitutes cutting edge imaging modality capable of detecting some eye diseases 3-5 years before your vision is affected. Impressive, well, we think so.
(Be aware , unfortunately the medicare system does not recognize or fiscally acknowledge the benefits of these scans, just like years ago MRI scans were considered superfluous, consequently there is an imaging fee applicable to these scans. Ask staff for more details.)
