VISUCAM PRO DIGITAL RETINAL PHOTOGRPAPHY
3D Vision is excited to announce that we have incorporated into our practice the VISUCAM PRO DIGITAL RETINAL PHOTOGRPAPHY.
This permanent record is very valuable in assessing the current health of your eye and for safeguarding the health of specific structures of your eye, such as the retina, optic nerve, macula, and blood vessels. It will also serve as an initial point from which to compare, as we follow your health in subsequent years.
OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY
An Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scan enables eye doctors to see all ten layers of the retina (8 layers are labeled below). A basic eye exam only allows the doctor to see the top layer. At 3D Vision we INCLUDE this advanced screening tool into your comprehensive eye exam.
An OCT scan is quick, painless and allows the eye doctor to see inside the whole eye. This enables doctors to catch any tumors, thinning, or swelling in the back of the eye which all can cause vision loss.
Optical Coherence Tomography is a diagnostic procedure in which a scanning light is used to create a digital cross-section image of the retina. The scanning light is aimed at the retina and a computer senses the amount of light reflected by the retina to create the cross-section image. This allows the thickness of the various retinal layers to be easily displayed. This diagnostic test is used to view swelling, membranes, macular holes, as well as a variety of optic nerve diseases/degenerations. In addition to viewing these conditions, the OCT is a great tool for diagnosing and treating glaucoma.
