Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Similar to ultrasound, this diagnostic imaging device uses light rather than sound waves to achieve higher resolution pictures of the structural layers of the back of the eye. With an OCT scan, Dr. DeMeritt is provided with color-coded, cross-sectional images of the retina. These detailed images are revolutionizing early detection and treatment of eye conditions such as wet and dry age-related macular degeneration, Glaucoma, Retinal Detachment and Diabetic Retinopathy.
An OCT scan is a noninvasive, painless test. It is performed in about 5 minutes right in our office. Feel free to contact us to inquire about an OCT at your next appointment!
