The REVO-OCT Wellness Scan
Utilising the very latest in eye scan technologies called Optical Coherence Tomography the REVO-OCT Wellness Scan provides a non invasive imaging method allowing detailed visualisation beneath the retinal surface to detect any abnormalities in the different retinal layers, to an almost cellular level, and monitor any changes over time.
Why should I consider the scan?
REVO-OCT Wellness Scanning allows your optometrist to detect any abnormalities in the different retinal layers, analyse these and monitor any changes over time. Meaning safer care and better preservation of sight.
What does it detect?
Glaucoma impairs vision by damaging the optic nerve, the cable of nerve fibres that transmits coded information from the eye to the brain. It usually involves an elevation of pressure inside the eye caused by excess fluid in the front part of the eye.
Diabetic Retinopathy is caused by damage to the small blood vessels in the retina, the light sensing tissue in the back of the eye. The affect of diabetic retinopathy on vision varies widely, depending on the stage of the disease.
Age-related Macular Degeneration
Age-related Macular Degeneration is a degenerative condition of the macula, the part of the retina solely responsible for seeing in colour and for providing the sharp, central vision needed to see faces clearly, read or even drive.
