Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) allows us to view the eye and retina in ways that were never before possible and catch diseases years before they are observable with the microscope. In order to make this technology available to more than just our patients with known ocular disease, we have put together a screening program that we offer to all of our patients over the age of 40 in order to ensure that each individual layer of your retina is healthy.
Below are a few examples of pathology that has been caught at our office since implementing the screening policy:
