Optical Coherence Tomographer

All our branches use the remarkable Nidek RS-DUO Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT for short) and we are able to scan and image the back of your eye at greater depth than using photography alone, allowing us to study your eyes in incredible detail.

We keep secure records of these images so that we can compare them at every visit, allowing us to discern even the smallest of changes. Having an OCT screening in combination with your normal eye test provides us with high resolution 3D images of your retina to assist in early detection and monitoring of various retinal diseases including Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Macular Degeneration and a great deal more...

Your OCT eye health check can be carried out at the same visit as your eye examination, when pre-booked. It is a painless and non-invasive procedure and only takes a few seconds for your eye to be scanned and photographed. Although Optical Coherence Tomography is not covered by the NHS, you can simply pre-book and pay a top up fee for this service and we will arrange a longer appointment with your Optometrist, which includes time for them to assess and discuss your scans with you.

For further information including costs simply visit our fees page or ask a member of staff at the time of booking your appointment.

If you are a member of our Rawlings Vision Plan Plus or you join on the day of your appointment, this is included in your plan.
