Optical Coherence Tomographer
Kanata Optometry Centre is proud to announce the arrival of the latest in eye-health technology, the Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT) is a high resolution ultrasound that direct cross-sectional images of the retina, optic nerve, cornea and anterior chamber angle. It is a quick, safe and painless procedure and the instrument never touches the eye. Direct cross-sectional images enable your doctor to look directly at a “cutaway” view of the layers of the retina and optic nerve and accurately measure their characteristics. Other machines like digital retinal cameras show the surface of these structures, but the OCT shows your doctor what is below the surface.
“This technology allows us to better manage eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration and gives our patients the benefit of having the latest in ocular imaging technology to monitor their eye conditions at their regular eye doctor’s office.”
– Dr. Morey, Kanata Optometry Centre Optometrist.
