We are one of the few optical practices in Galway offering an OCT scans to patients. An OCT machine enables patients to get a visual map of the back of their eye. Not only does it allow you to map the health of the eye over time, it also allows early diagnosis of Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma. We can then refer immediately to a specialist and provide the ophthalmologist with an excellent briefing. Click here for more information.
What is OCT
OCT stands for Optical Coherence Tomography. Simply put, the OCT is a non-invasive tool that “takes pictures of the back of your eye.” … It is safe, non-invasive, and not destructive to tissue.
