Spectralis OCT


The Spectralis OCT 4 Dimensional Eye Examination

What to Expect

The actual scan takes just seconds to carry out. The camera does not touch your eye and there is no bright flash or puff of air. It is a comfortable, non-intrusive and non-invasive procedure. Your full eye test may take 60 to 80 minutes in total.

The SPECTRALIS 4D HD Eye Health Check is much more than your standard sight test. The light beam scans the retina gathering information at different depths of the eye - active eye-tracking produces amazingly accurate 3-dimensional images of the back of your eye, looking for very early signs of glaucoma and other retinal and systemic diseases.

Why should I have a SPECTRALIS 4D HD Eye Health Check?

Rapid detection and rapid referral for treatment are the key to saving your sight.

It is commonly known that structural change in the eye often occurs long before you might notice any functional change or loss (sometimes by as much as 12 years). The Spectralis 4D HD Eye Health Examination offers you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your eyes are healthy or that your optometrist will detect the smallest change before you do, thereby reducing the risk of sight loss and improving our patient's lives.


What makes the SPECTRALIS Eye Health Check 4-Dimensional?

IT MEASURES CHANGE OVER TIME, time being the fourth dimension, measuring the smallest change to 1/1000 mm every time you visit.

You will be shown your 3D images and we will explain the results of the different scans with you.

After your eye examination, should you require vision correction we offer a wide range of spectacles, contact lenses and sunglasses to suit your personal style and budget.

“We are able to measure the smallest change …and that changes everything.”
