Our Maple Ridge optometrists are thrilled to announce the arrival of a new state-of-art diagnostic instrument.
The Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT), takes 53,000 laser scans per second to capture cross-sectional images of the eye similar to an MRI scan. This layer-by-layer investigation assists in early detection of ocular conditions including central retinal diseases, detachments, holes, thinning, optic nerve disease including glaucoma, precancerous lesions, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.
We also store and compare the results of future tests so that a complete ocular health history can be generated. Minute changes that may not have been apparent are readily identified with these tests. This is especially important for those patients who have a personal or family history of systemic or eye disease.
Our eye doctors in Maple Ridge recommend a baseline scan for all our patients.
