Ocular Coherence Tomography
Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an advanced imaging technique used by optometrists to capture detailed, cross-sectional images of the layers of the retina. OCT is a non-invasive and painless procedure that provides optometrists with invaluable information about the health of the retina and its associated structures. This information can be used to diagnose and monitor diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.
At Parkhurst Opticians, we believe in the importance of caring for your eyes. Our team of experienced optometrists are committed to providing the highest standard of eye care. Our practice is equipped with the latest technology, including OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) to ensure that our patients receive the most comprehensive eye exams. We understand the importance of early detection and diagnosis of eye diseases, and we use OCT to detect and monitor any changes in the eye.
We are one of the first opticians to adopt the OCT, and we believe that NHS patients should pay for it as an extra to the standard NHS sight test. Our OCT are included in our private eye examination can help to save your sight. At Parkhurst Opticians, we provide the highest quality eye care and care deeply about our patients.
