By using our OCT, Dr. Verna can get a deeper view each of your retina’s distinctive layers. This allows her to map and measure their various thicknesses of each layer. These measurements help with diagnosis and also provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and other diseases of the retina. These retinal diseases include age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic eye disease.
You will sit in front of our OCT machine and rest your head on a support to keep it motionless. The equipment will then scan your eye without touching it. Scanning takes about 5 – 10 minutes. If your eyes were dilated, they may be sensitive to light for several hours after the exam.
Dr. Verna will share with you the results of your OCT test, and you'll be able to see deep inside your own eye!
An OCT exam can detect early signs of numerous diseases that affect not only your eyes and your sight, but also your overall health. The results help Dr. Verna identify abnormalities that could indicate the onset of a number of diseases that often present first in the retina. In these instances, individuals typically do not experience any pain or outward symptoms.
