Serious Conditions that Can Be Detected by an OCT Eye Scan


 
Health
Optical health is so important and thanks to the new hospital grade technology in the form of an OCT eye scanner, opticians have access to a deeper understanding of a person’s long term eye health.

What is Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)?

This high resolution 3D imaging has taken vision tests to a whole new level. Using a cross-section image of the retina (the bit at the back of the eye that converts light into the electrical signals the brain uses to make the images you see) the optometrist can take an indepth look at the separate layers and, using measurements, can detect changes.

Why Should You Have an OCT Eye Scan

The layers of the retina and any changes in these can be interpreted as early signs of disease, which could be potentially life changing. Most serious vision-related health complications don’t show symptoms in their early stages, making them very tricky to detect, which is why the OCT eye scan is so key in potentially revolutionizing vision health.

What are the Associated Diseases?

Glaucoma

This is the name that we use for a group of conditions that involve the optic nerve at the place where it joins the back of the eye. It is very complex and can include nerve damage, which can leave someone with limited vision. It can’t be cured but it can be slowed or even stopped, which is where the OCT eye scan comes in. Catch it early and treatment can be very successful.

Macular Degeneration

AMD or aged macular degeneration affects the macula in the middle of the retina. If this macula is impeded it can lead to two types of vision loss: atrophic and exudative. Both lead to blurred sight and many people with this condition find that activities requiring detail and focus become impossible.

AMD is something that affects us all as we get older, but it can be managed depending on the type you have. Regular visits to the optician will mean you get the best relevant treatment options for you.

Diabetic Retinopathy

This is a condition that is often seen in diabetic patients who have had diabetes for ten years or more. It is a closing of the blood vessels in the retina that then leads to it becoming blood deficient. In turn, the surface of the retina becomes covered by abnormal and fragile vessels, which can cause a complete loss of vision.

Regular monitoring is the best way to spot the early signs so that action can be taken before permanent damage occurs.

It is clear that including an OCT eye scan in a visit to the optician is paramount. Serious retina and optic nerve conditions can lead to lifelong vision impairment and other painful issues, so by catching them early and getting treatment started, quality of life can be maintained. Book your appointment with your local optician and give your eyes the best chance of staying as healthy as possible.
