What is an OCT Eye Scan and how does it work?

OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) provides a detailed insight into ocular health, offering a deeper understanding compared to standard digital retinal photography. While traditional methods focus on surface examination, OCT scans provide intricate 3D images of internal eye structures, including the retina, the blood vessel, the optic nerve fibres and disc, the cornea and all of its layers. These cross-sectional views facilitate early detection of significant issues and helps us monitor various eye conditions, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and more. Similar to ultrasound, OCT employs light waves instead of sound waves to visualise all layers of eye structures even its blood vessels. By capturing over 1,000 images of the eye, from the retina to the optic nerve, OCT generates precise 3D representations, enhancing our ability to assess ocular structures.

Benefits of OCT Eye Examination

The OCT 3D scan is quick, painless, and non-invasive, much like conventional retinal photography. Its primary advantage lies in its ability to diagnose eye conditions before symptoms arise, enabling early intervention. The detailed images reveal subtle changes in ocular health, aiding in the detection of conditions such as:

  • Glaucoma
  • Aged Macular Degeneration
  • Detached Retina
  • Macular Hole
  • Diabetes
  • Optic Nerve Inflammation
  • Retinal Vein Occlusion
  • General Ocular Health and Wellness
  • Cornea Disease
