Technology - OCT

We are excited to introduce our new OCT (optical coherence tomographer). While our previous OCT was only 3 years old, the technology has come a long way to improve the quality of the scans. 

The new instrument features an automatic "pause." Unlike the previous device, this OCT recognizes when a patient moves or blinks. It can pause during the blink and then resume the scan after the patient's eye opens again. This decreases stress on the patient and the technician and eliminates gaps in the scan.
The OCT is a key instrument in diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and a multitude of other retinal disorders. The detail this instrument is able to achieve can also help in diagnosis of ocular complications that are too small for the doctor to see with his or her own eyes.
A great new feature for this instrument is the ability for it to not only scan the retina, but also the front surface of the eye. 

Welcome to the Eye Health Solutions Blog!

At Eye Health Solutions we strive to be at the forefront of technology. Not just to look awesome...(though we are :) ) ...but also to take the best care of our patients. 
Our technology spans from a camera in the exam room to capture photos or videos of the ocular surface, to cameras and scanning lasers that image the inside of the eye, to the Zeiss i.Terminal in the optical that assists in precise measurements for customized lenses. 
All great reasons, not to mention the knowledgable and caring people here at EHS, to make us your destination of choice for all your eye care needs!
Hope to see you soon!
