OCT

At Louth Vision Centre we provide state-of-the-art optical solutions to enhance your vision and eye health. We are proud to offer Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) services, utilizing the cutting-edge Revo OptiPol FC technology. This advanced imaging technique allows us to obtain high-resolution, three-dimensional images of your eyes, enabling us to provide a comprehensive and accurate assessment of your ocular health.

What is Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)?

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging technology that provides detailed cross-sectional images of the retina, optic nerve, and other ocular structures. It uses light waves to capture precise measurements of the different layers within the eye, allowing for early detection, diagnosis, and management of various eye conditions. OCT has revolutionised the field of ophthalmology and is considered a gold standard for assessing ocular health.

Benefits of Optical Coherence Tomography:

  1. Early Detection of Eye Conditions: With the high-resolution imaging capabilities of Revo OptiPol FC, we can identify and monitor subtle changes in your eye structures, enabling early detection of conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal detachments.

  2. Precise Diagnosis and Treatment: By obtaining detailed images of the retina and other ocular tissues, our optometrists can make accurate diagnoses and create personalized treatment plans tailored to your specific needs. This ensures the most effective management of your eye condition, optimizing your visual health and quality of life.

  3. Monitoring Disease Progression: OCT imaging allows us to monitor the progression of eye diseases over time. By comparing images obtained during different visits, we can track changes in your eye health and adjust treatment plans accordingly. This proactive approach helps prevent further vision loss and maintains long-term eye health.

  4. Enhanced Patient Education: With the help of OCT images, our optometrists can explain complex eye conditions in a visual and easy-to-understand manner. This empowers you to actively participate in your eye care journey, understand the impact of the condition on your vision, and make informed decisions about treatment options.

The OCT scan is done during your eye examination with us and only takes a couple of minutes.

The OCT scan is free* when signing up on one of our eyecare plans or £35 for your first scan and £90 thereafter.
