BBR Optometry was the first optometry practice to bring retinal imaging to the Hereford high street (Polaroid film 1989) which became digital in 2000.
OCT is Optical Coherence Tomography. This is the next generation in imaging the internal structures of the eye. The OCT is a special scanner that creates a sort of optical ultrasound three dimensional image of the inside of the eye. The unique way the image is formed means that for the first time we can actually see below the surface of the retina and view the microscopic layers beneath. This is of profound importance in determining the precise diagnosis of visual problems and in helping us guide patients on the treatment options possible.
Once again BBR Optometry is able to offer its patients direct access to the most sophisticated eye examination available.
3D OCT imaging is automatically part of your BBR private Eye Examination and is included in our extension to the NHS Sight Test.
