Optical Coherence Tomography- OCT

What is OCT?

OCT- Optical Coherence Tomography- is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to illustrate the different layers that make up the back of your eye. The OCT machine captures both a funds photograph and a cross-sectional scan of the back of the eye at the same time.

What does the OCT cost?

There is an additional charge for the OCT can, but the benefits are obvious. So you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your eyes are in great condition.
