Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Imaging

Dr. Christopher Inclima of Inclima Eye Care, in West Haven, CT is proud to offer the latest cutting edge OCT technology in retinal imaging. The amazing OCT device allows your eye doctor to see retinal, optic nerve and cornea structures not visible through regular exam methods by using light to provide a high resolution scan meant to pick up early signs of structural change or disease. This allows your eye doctor to see even the smallest changes in the retina and optic nerve with greater accuracy, and much higher definition, making early and accurate detection of common sight threatening eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, easier than ever before.

Advanced OCT Imaging Technology

OCT Retinal Imaging in West Haven, CTWhile traditional imaging technologies are usually able to scan around 15% of your retina at a time, the Inclima Eye Care OCT is able to scan in a stunningly large 200 degree arc, capturing about 80% of your retina in one panoramic scan. This allows for a wider and more accurate view of the retina than with less advanced scans. This scan will provide you and your eye doctor with an extremely detailed picture of your eye that will act as a valuable road map of your overall eye health.

The high resolution images produced by the OCT provide a personal benchmark for each person's ocular health and helps detect sudden changes through the years, and since the images show up automatically on a computer monitor, you are able to see for yourself everything the doctor is telling you about your eye health, allowing you to take an active role in preserving your valuable sense of sight.

OCT is Vital for Early Detection & Prevention

Dr. Christopher Inclima recommends an OCT scan to every patient, “The quality of the OCT scan and the amount of information we can get from this scan is of great value. Often, we find that a patient thinks his or her vision is very good, but when we administer the OCT scan, we find that, at the cellular level, there are important changes that signify possible issues that may otherwise have gone unnoticed. Early detection and effective prevention are the most important parts of beating any disease, and this is where the OCT scan shines!”
