Retinal Scanning

We are proud to have our very own Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT) at TAURANGA EYECARE-the Zeiss Cirrus 5000. We were an early adaptor of this technology being the first in the Bay of Plenty to have this technology within an optometry practice.

What is an OCT?

An OCT provides high resolution images of the anterior segment of the eye and retina, especially the macula and optic nerve head. It takes a detailed, 3D image below the surface of your retina, and it’s now the gold standard in vivo imaging device for the retina. It’s able to provide real time, cross-sectional images and analysis to optimise the diagnosis and monitoring of retinal disease.

Retinal scanning  has a cost of 75.00.
