We have recently added a new piece of technology to our office called an Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT). This instrument allows us to construct 3-Dimensional images of certain parts of the eye. This allows us to see parts of your eye in cross-section, which improves our ability to diagnose eye conditions earlier and more accurately.

The instrument also has a large normative database, allowing us to compare measurements from your eye to what a normal, healthy eye should look like. This helps improve detection of minute changes in the eye that we otherwise wouldn’t be able to detect!
