The adage, “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder” cannot help but emphasis the importance of our eyes in how we see the world and perceive it. Thus, our eyes need to be taken very good care of along with regular eye examinations. General eye health and optimum vision can be maintained through regular eye examinations, and one should have an eye examination done every 2 years. However, an annual examination is recommended for contact lens users, people having certain medical conditions, and children.
While a basic eye examination helps to monitor the general well being of one’s eyes, an advanced examination (OCT Scan) at Hodd, Barnes & Dickins using 3D scan technology allows a comprehensive eye examination from the cornea to the optic nerve and beyond. It is a non-contact, non-invasive technique that produces high resolution 3D images of the eye and helps in an advanced examination of one’s eye health and any underlying issues.
An OCT scan is crucial for the early detection of many sight threatening diseases even before symptoms occur. It also helps to monitor the progression of disease and treatment outcomes. Thus, it ends up playing a critical role in avoiding irreversible vision loss through early diagnosis. In fact, it is such a powerful technology that it could turn around one’s life from possible disease-related blindness in the future to retaining one’s vision for life! So, what are you waiting for?
