When should my eye examination involve an OCT scan?
You can quickly and easily upgrade your eye examination to include this 3D scan at any time. We recommend getting your eyes thoroughly scanned by our OCT machine if there is any history of glaucoma or diabetes in your immediate family.
The OCT scan also helps us to diagnose conditions such as age-related macular degeneration.
Even if you don’t have any family history of eye disease, it’s still important to get your eyes regularly scanned, as the earlier you find a health problem, the easier it is to treat.
We’re often able to prevent diseases by recognising the early signs and treating them before they become a problem.
