Mullers Optometrists strive to keep up to date with the latest technologies in eyecare, the OCT scanner improves our level of patient care immensely by assisting in earlier and more accurate diagnoses.
OCT or Optical Coherence Tomography is a non-invasive instrument that allows us to see a 3D or cross section of the retina. This aids us in the early detection of eye diseases such as Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma and Diabetic Retinopathy before symptoms appear. An OCT scan functions similarly to a CT scan using light waves to differentiate the layers of the retina.

The OCT scanner also examines the cornea in great detail which allows us to fit specialised contact lenses on irregular corneas with improved accuracy.
