We are extremely proud to be able to offer a new and unique eye care service to our patients following installation of the Nidek Retina Scan Duo Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT for short).

OCT’s use very advanced technology, found predominantly in hospital eye departments, to detect abnormalities at an incredibly early stage.  It performs up to 8 different scans and produces various 3D HD images and reports which allows your Optician to study your eyes in remarkable detail, from the top surface of your retina right down to underlying surfaces that are not visible to us by other means.  It provides exquisite details of retinal microstructures to assist in early detection, diagnosis and monitoring of various retinal diseases including Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Age Related Macular Degeneration, Retinal Detachments and a great deal more.

Being one of very few opticians in the country with the ability to perform an OCT in practice means we can offer you undoubtedly the highest level of eye care available within the local area.
