THE FIRST AND ONLY 3D EYE SCANNER OF ITS KIND
IN PORT ELIZABETH
The Topcon Swept Source OCT scanner.
It is the only one of its kind in Port Elizabeth and as an ophthalmologist I have been truly blown away by this technology.
- This machine scans the eye and the resolution of the images generated is phenomenal; we can now visualize intricate detail of the eye three-dimensionally with unprecedented detail. Early detection of various conditions as well as monitoring of their progression is now viable in ways never before possible for doctors - until now.
- Through OCT Angiography (OCT-A) we are now able to non-invasively image blood vessels of the eye with high resolution and in 3D. This means that in most cases patients no longer need to be injected with fluorescein in order to generate valuable images of the vasculature. This eliminates the risk of allergic reaction to contrast dye and not having to inject patients is far less stressful and of course painless.
Interested patients; please give the rooms a call to book an appointment:
The scan is painless , takes only 10mins and is fully covered by most medical aids.
For any interested optometrists, please let me know if you would like to pop in to the practice for me to show you the machine or if you would like to discuss ways in which we may be able to help your patients using this new equipment. It has proven to be a diagnostic game changer for me and I am proud to share its capabilities!
I look forward to sharing this truly amazing new technology with you!
