We are delighted to now offer Enhanced Sight Tests at our Sydenham practice using our OCT camera.

OCT (Optical Coherance Tomography) is a new, completely painless and highly advanced imaging system that checks for potentially serious conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, age-related macular degeneration, vitreous detachments and more.

The OCT camera is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages.  Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to image the different layers that make up the structures at the front and the back of your eye.  The OCT machine captures both a photograph and a cross-sectional scan of the eye at the same time.  This allows both instant and early diagnosis of a number of common ocular conditions.  The scan is non-invasive, painless, simple and quick.  What’s more, the software can automatically detect even the most subtle changes to the retina with every eye test you have.  This gives you an invaluable ongoing record of the health and condition of your eyes.  For more info visit;  http://rwoodfall.co.uk/sydenham/other-services/enhanced-eye-examination
