ZEISS CIRRUS HD- OCT An Advanced Diagnostic Scan to Evaluate Retinal Health
Maintaining comfort by never actually coming into contact with your eye, the Zeiss OCT HD helps your doctor clearly see the internal structure of your eye in no more than a few minutes. The ZEISS CIRRUS HD-OCT, has the ability to image, and cross section each individual layer of the retina, which is the only technology that can accurately provide such information, making it the ultimate tool for precise diagnosis and treatment.
An OCT is useful in diagnosing many eye conditions including:
Macular Hole: a small break in the macula, the part of your eye responsible for detailed, central vision
Macular Pucker: a layer of scar tissue that grows on the surface of the retina, particularly the macula
Macular Edema: swelling or thickening of the macula
Central serous retinopathy: build-up of fluid under the retina that distorts vision
Diabetic retinopathy: diabetes damages the tiny blood cells in the retina
Age-related macular degeneration
In addition, an OCT is often used to evaluate disorders of the optic nerve, which is made up of many nerve fibers and sends signals from your retina to your brain. The OCT exam is helpful in determining changes to the fibers in the optic nerve, such as those caused by glaucoma.
