OCT Scanning
We at C.R. Williams Opticians always strive to offer the best care for your eyes.

This is why we have invested in some of the latest technology. An OCT scan can look in detail at the structures of the eye to investigate the health of the eyes in much greater detail.

Seeing through the retina

Traditional examination of the back of the eye (the retina) involved looking for signs of change on the surface. Thanks to REVO-OCT we can see through the surface and examine all the layers of the retina. Being able to identify and monitor abnormality within these layers is essential for early detection and diagnosis of some of the major causes of visual impairment and blindness; meaning treatments can be made available at the earliest possible moment.

What Does it Detect?

impairs vision by damaging the optic nerve, the cable of nerve fibres that transmits coded information from the eye to the brain. Glaucoma usually involves an elevation of pressure inside the eye caused by an excess fluid in the front part of the eye.

Diabetic Retinopathy

is caused by damage to the small blood vessels in the retina, the light sensing tissue in the back of the eye. The affect of diabetic retinopathy on vision varies widely, depending on the stage of the disease.

Age-related Macular Degeneration

Age-related Macular Degeneration is a degenerative condition of the macula, the part of the retina solely responsible for seeing in colour and for providing the sharp, central vision needed to see faces clearly, read or even drive.

What can I expect from the Revo-Oct Wellness scan?

The scan itself takes only a matter of minutes. It is totally non-invasive, so nothing touches your eye so it’s pain/discomfort free! You will be asked to place your chin on the rest and look at a light, which may be moved according to the area scanned. The 2D & 3D HD-Scans are analysed and interpreted by specialised on board clinical diagnostic software. If necessary, further analysis can be undertaken by your Optometrist.
