Optical Coherence Topography is effectively ‘optical ultrasound’, imaging reflections from within tissue to provide cross-sectional 3D images of your eyes.
This cost effective (just £39) and thorough scanning technique can help us look at a multitude of human eye health issues.
Records are precise and many of our patients have said that the experience was not daunting at all.
We are the first practice in the entire South West to have invested in the latest 3D Triton Optical Coherence Topography (OCT) in Taunton. We are now very pleased to also welcome OCT technology in our Langport practice.
Our state of the art OCT takes 3D cross sectional scans of the retina in the back of your eyes. This allows us to instantly gain a very accurate record of your current eye health. With this baseline we can look for changes over time and diagnose a large number of common conditions, often years in advance, as well as giving an invaluable record of your eye health.
It is completely painless, quick and allows us to detect a wide range of common and not so common eye conditions.
We store all the images captured on our secure computer system so that each time you visit us we are able to refer back to previous images and make vital comparisons against your previous records.
This additional information allows us to diagnose and monitor eye conditions very accurately and to recommend treatment at much earlier stages than would otherwise be possible.Make an Appointment
