Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, provides the latest scanning technology for use during the evaluation of the eye. The OCT scanning system reproduces the retina with high-resolution tissue images in order to gather and utilize information for diagnosis and treatment.
The OCT instrument produces quality images that allow a patient’s doctor to thoroughly evaluate the innermost layers of the eye. With this incredible technology, Dr. Lewis is able to detect and treat potentially dangerous or vision impairing eye conditions before they become problematic. Now vision disturbances are easier to identify than ever before, including glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic macular edema and others. Because the OCT instrumentation is located in the lab at the Cherry Creek Eye Center, patients don’t need to travel to another facility for their test. In fact, the test is frequently done at the time it is requested. OCT application is painless and non-invasive and provides Cherry Creek Eye Physicians and Surgeons, P.C. patients with valuable peace of mind.
