-- ‘OCT stands for Optical Coherence Tomography and is the essential tool used in hospitals and primary care for the identification of early stage of eye disease before symptoms and irreversible vision loss can occur. It can also be used for the tracking of eye disease progression and to monitor treatment options’, said Mohammed. ‘Since investing in this technology the practice has picked up rare cases of glaucoma, diabetic retinal changes, retinal traction, wet and dry macular degeneration, macular holes, central serous retinopathy and other conditions that may not be picked up in a normal eye test. The technology allows us to see below the surface of the layers of the eye and therefore allows earlier diagnoses. This means better treatment options for patients’
An OCT scan costs approximately £200 per eyes at private hospitals excluding consultant fees but costs between £35 and £60 for up to 6 scans on both eyes at Visual Answers Optometrists, now making it affordable to everyone to benefit from this amazing technology on an annual or biannual basis.
