OCT Scans in Glasgow

What is an OCT Scan?

An Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) scan captures a highly detailed 3D image of the back of the eye.

This OCT scan is a more accurate process than the conventional fundus camera used in most optometric practices in Scotland and until recently OCT scans were mostly carried out in hospital eye departments.

An OCT scan is a simple and pain-free procedure which produces a 3D image with significantly higher resolution than other optical imaging technology.

Easily Identify Conditions Such As:

​Age-related macular degeneration:

A common condition that affects the middle part of your eye and vision.

Diabetic retinopathy:

A complication of diabetes that affects the eye.

​Glaucoma:

A condition where the optic nerve, which connects the eye to the brain, becomes damaged.

Retinal detachment:

When the retina, which is a thin layer at the back of the eye becomes loose.
