High Definition Retinal Scanning

Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) is a cutting-edge diagnostic test that revolutionizes the imaging and measurement of retinal thickness. At Smoke Vision Care, we utilize SD-OCT to detect retinal swelling, fluid accumulation in macular disease, and diagnose early stages of glaucoma. This advanced technology enables us to identify retinal nerve fiber defects and swelling, crucial for optimal visual outcomes. Additionally, SD-OCT aids in tracking the response to treatment for retinal diseases and can unveil neurological conditions affecting the eye in their earliest stages.

How Does It Work?

SD-OCT utilizes rays of light to measure retinal thickness in just a few minutes. This painless and fast procedure requires no dilation or exposure to radiation, and results are promptly available.

Who Should Have SD-OCT Testing?

Patients at high risk, including those on certain medications, diabetics, or individuals with eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, should undergo regular SD-OCT evaluations. Those with a family history of glaucoma or retinal disease, even without symptoms, may opt for a baseline screening. Our team evaluates your risk factors and recommends testing accordingly.

Our Cutting-Edge Technology

At Smoke Vision Care, we house Essilor OCT 500 and Zeiss Cirrus OCT instruments in our Buchanan and New Buffalo locations respectively. With trained technicians conducting imaging, no doctor appointment is necessary. Results are reviewed by our doctors, and patients are promptly informed. Most insurance plans cover SD-OCT testing with a medical diagnosis supporting its necessity.
