Laser Retinal Scanner (OCT) now at Bridgman Eyecare Dunedin - 1st Aug 2015

Our new Copernicus OCT. Our new Copernicus SOCT is simply amazing!  In a few seconds we can now produce a 3D image of the back of your eye, showing the different layers of the retina.  This is expecially useful for detecting Glaucoma, Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Diabetic Retinopathy, and Preretinal membranes.  It also allows us to check whether a mole underneath the retina is likely to be a melanoma, and to "see through" a cataract to make sure the retina is healthy.

The Copernicus has an additional anterior chamber lens which we use to check for Closed Angle Glaucoma, and measure corneal thickness and contact lens fitting parameters in Keratoconus.

Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) for short) uses two invisible infra-red laser beams to harmlessly scan the back or the front of the eye.  We really believe this revolutionises the diagnosis and treatment of eye disease in a primary health care setting such as ours, and we anticipate installing similar technology into our Queenstown office before too long.
