3D OCT Scan (for eye health)

A 3D OCT eye test could save your sight!

This is an advanced eye health test, which can pick up unwanted changes at the back of the eyes up to 4 years earlier compared to a standard eye test. It can detect early signs of Macular Degeneration, Diabetic eye disease, Glaucoma, and general health problems. Early detection means there is more chance of treatment before permanent damage occurs. We have saved many people's sight because of this test.

We have easy Online Booking for appointments or call 020 8759 9395

We recommend that you have a 3D OCT Scan every time you have an eye test, as your eyes can change from one visit to the next. The scans costs £35 or is free if you are one of our Eyecare Members.

Who should have a 3D OCT scan?

I already attend diabetic eye screening, do I still need a 3D OCT scan?

Digital Retinal Photography​

Who should have a 3D OCT scan?

  • Everyone who wants to look after their eyes (from age 6 onwards)

  • If you have noticed a sudden reduction, change of vision or unexplained problems

  • Anyone who has a family history of or has Diabetes, Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, or eye floaters and flashes

I already attend diabetic eye screening, do I still need a 3D OCT scan?

  • A 3D OCT scan allows us to see all 10 layers of the retina (the back of the eye) whereas diabetic eye screening only looks at the top layer. It is still important to go to your diabetic eye screening appointments, however this is a more advanced test that picks up changes earlier. We regularly refer diabetic patients back to their eye clinics for further tests.​

Digital Retinal Photography

This examines the surface of the retina (back of the eye) in more detail. It can detect vascular conditions such as blood pressure, Diabetes, Macular degeneration and Glaucoma, eye floaters and more.The 3D OCT Scan not only looks at the surface of the retina, but underneath also. Therefore changes are detected much earlier than digital retinal photography alone.
