Optical Coherence Tomography Scanner (HD-OCT) with Spectral Domain Technology

The Cirrus HD-OCT uses light waves to create dramatic and detailed images of the inside of the eye. Dynamic information provided by this instrument produces views of the eye never seen before and not possible by other technologies. The OCT scanner is a non-contact and non-invasive way to determine earlier detection of eye problems and to ultimately better preserve vision.

There is no exposure to painful high-intensity light and no injections or dyes required, so patients are comfortable and safe.

Using the scanning abilities of this instrument enables the doctors of Family Eye Care Clinic to more specifically diagnose, treat and manage glaucoma and retinal diseases, including diabetic retinopathy, macular edema and macula degeneration. A macular scan by the Cirrus HD-OCT is part of the required testing for patients taking Plaquenil with the new 2011 guidelines set by the AAO.
