Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an advanced technology used to produce cross-sectional images of the retina. These images can help with the detection and treatment of serious eye conditions such as macular holes, macular swelling and optic nerve damage.
OCT uses technology that is similar to CT scans of internal organs, using a scattering of light to rapidly scan the eye to create an accurate cross-section. Unlike other imaging techniques, OCT uses light to produce high resolution images, rather than sound or radiofrequency waves. Your doctor can evaluate and measure each layer of the retina through this image and compare it with normal, healthy images of the retina.
The OCT exam takes about 5 minutes to perform.
The cost of OCT test is 4000Rs.
We are using Avanti Scanner OptoVue, which is a top line OCT Machine.
