Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive essential tool for diagnosing and managing retinal diseases and glaucoma.
Detects deficiencies in peripheral vision. Allows for early detection and detailed monitoring of Glaucoma, optic nerve disorders, and brain lesions.
Obtains specialized pictures of the optic nerve, blood vessels and other tissues of the eye with and without dilation. Detects and manages diseases such as Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Hypertensive Retinopathy and many others.
Having your MPOD (Macular Pigment Optical Density) measured is very important as healthy MPOD reduces a key risk factor for Age Related Macular Degeneration. Macular pigment protects the photoreceptors in the back of the eye from harmful blue light and can improve visual performance including acuity, light sensitivity, glare and contrast sensitivity. The MPOD exam takes only a few minutes and is non-invasive.
