All of our stores have the latest Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) instruments which provide the most comprehensive image of the eye available today. This 3D imaging technology provides a highly detailed internal image of your eye, the resolution of which is similar to an ultrasound or MRI.

Our optometrists can monitor and manage the health of your eyes, assisting them in identifying a number of eye diseases in their early stages, sometimes years before symptoms become obvious.

OCT imaging is the only technology that provides these high definition cross-sectional images, so it’s the ultimate tool for precise diagnosis and prompt referral to an ophthalmologist for treatment.
OCT scans take just a few minutes to complete and are completely pain free as there’s no direct contact with your eye.
