Our TOPCON OCT is the latest advancement in imaging technology. Similar to an ultrasound, this diagnostic tool employs light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye. With an OCT, the doctors are provided with cross-sectional images of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions. Detecting retinal disorders as early as possible is critical to potentially preventing serious disease progression and even vision loss. The images also provide a baseline for monitoring healthy eyes and become a part of each patient’s permanent medical record at our office.
