Optovue SD-OCT Retinal Imaging is a quick, safe, and painless procedure that obtains an image of the inner eye. Similar to a CT or MRI scan but using visible light, this amazing technology allows us to see beneath the surface of the retina and detect changes invisible to standard examination. OCT scans are useful for the early detection of eye abnormalities and disease which is important for timely treatment. This has been the most significant advance in ocular disease detection in many years!
Sight threatening diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and others often have no outward signs or symptoms, which is why eye exams, including a thorough retinal evaluation, are important to protect vision. In an effort to provide a more thorough eye exam, Eugene OR optometrist Dr. Cuevas has incorporated the iVue OCT / iFusion system, which combines Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography and Digital Fundus Imaging as part of your complete eye exam.
