Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Get a better diagnosis of your eye health with optical coherence tomography (OCT scan)

Dr. David Bond & Associates Optometrists in Barrie, Ontario offers optical coherence tomography

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. With OCT, each of the retina’s layers can be seen, allowing your optometrist to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with diagnosis and provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and retinal diseases.

To prepare you for an optical coherence tomography (OCT) exam, your optometrist may put dilating eye drops in your eyes in order to widen your pupil and make it easier to examine the retina

Optical coherence tomography is useful in diagnosing many eye conditions, including:

-Macular hole

-Macular pucker

-Macular edema

-Age-related macular degeneration

-Glaucoma

-Central serous retinopathy

-Diabetic retinopathy

-Preretinal membranes
