OCT (OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY)

Provides a scan of the structure of the retina in different areas, including:

  • The nerve head, where changes occur with glaucoma. It allows us to measure any thickness changes in the nerve fibre layer in microns.
  • The macula, identifying any changes which might indicate risk for macula degeneration. It also helps discriminate between the dry and wet forms of the disease.
