At Overlake EyeCare, we are proud to offer Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)!
This advanced, noninvasive technology is a form of retinal imaging that allows us to capture high resolution cross-sectional images.
By examining the layers in the retina and measuring their thickness, we can better monitor the onset and progression of various retinal conditions and diseases.
This method of testing is the standard when it comes to the assessment and treatment of these conditions, and can be completed without any patient discomfort or exposure to radiation as no x-rays are used.
Your doctor may conduct an OCT scan for several reasons, but the most common include:
To monitor the progression of your retinal condition
To confirm or rule out swelling of the retina
To compare current and previous scans to monitor the success of a medication or treatment
If you have questions about OCT, we are happy to help you feel comfortable and informed prior to your appointment. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact us today at (425) 643-2020.
