The Spectralis system is very similar to a CAT scan, and allows us to create a high definition layered view of the retina. Our eyes are made up of different layers and a Digital photo only gives us a detailed image of the top layer. This scan allows us to explore the eye with precision and in more depth, ultimately allowing more accurate diagnosis.
West Malling Opticians provide Heidelberg Spectralis 4D Oct Scans to aid the very early detection of eye health issues. This scan is also used as a good baseline to monitor any changes over time and to show any rapid progression in a disease, allowing us to treat faster. This enables us to spot issues with eye health and some other related health problems at a very early stage.
