Orpington Eyecare Centre are proud to be the first UK Optician to offer 4D HD OCT scans with the Heidelberg Engineering Spectralis Spirit.
The new addition to our practice provides us with cutting edge technology to capture and view patient retinal images. The detailed imagery of retinal layers allows us to pick and monitor up early signs of disease in the retina and optical nerve head. This machine also allows us to compare previous scans and detect even the smallest of changes.
OCT scans are non invasive and completely painless and allow us to look below the surface of your retina. The results are available immediately and allow us to detect and monitor many eye conditions including macular degeneration and glaucoma, as well as monitoring the effects on the eyes, of diseases such as diabetes.
The Spectralis is a hybrid machine combining OCT with Confocal Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy (cSLO), providing us much higher contrast imagery and more accurate scans of your retinas in comparison to other OCT scanners.
