OCT Imaging

We Use the Cirrus HD OCT to Diagnose and Monitor Many Eye Conditions

Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an important imaging technique that allows our Optometrists to make more accurate diagnosis’ of many different eye diseases.

The Cirrus HD OCT measures the thickness of certain parts of your eye, creating a cross-section of the cornea, iris, optic nerve, and anterior portion of the retina.

Eye Diseases We Can Find With OCT Imaging

OCT Imaging is an effective tool for the detection and monitoring of:

What Do I Do During the Scan?

When the OCT equipment is running, all you need to do is remain seated in position and follow the instructions provided. The test is painless, taking about 10 minutes to complete.

In some cases we may need to dilate your pupils using eye drops prior to beginning the scan.

What Happens After the Scan?

The OCT machine takes hundreds of scans and analyzes them right away. Your optometrist will go over the results with you in their office. The OCT scans better enable your optometrist to detect signs of early eye disease or progression of existing disease. Any future OCT scans that are performed will always be compared to your first baseline scan to screen for progression of eye disease or development of new eye disease.
