OCT EYE TESTs IN BERKHAMSTED
TESTING FOR MORE THAN JUST VISION
Everybody would love to enjoy perfect vision, and thanks to the rapid advances in optometry, just about anybody can if they receive the right treatment.

Our highly trained and fully qualified staff can read the results accurately to prescribe the most effective form of treatment for your particular diagnosis.
This high tech scan can detect eye and health conditions in their early stages, allowing you to take preventative measures to keep your vision intact. Learn more by calling our professional opticians today.

WHY HAVING AN OCT SCAN IS SO BENEFICIAL
Where most eye-related health problems can be halted and treated effectively if caught early, there are some that are almost impossible to detect using standard methods.
Using state-of-the-art and specialist Topcon 3D technology, we are able to identify and diagnose conditions such as:
- Macular Degeneration
- Macular Holes
- Vitreous Detachment
If left untreated, all the conditions above could lead to severe impairment of sight. Ensure that you catch them early by booking an appointment at David Paul Opticians today.

WHAT CAN THE OCT SCAN CHECK FOR?
This comprehensive retinal scan can highlight various conditions before they potentially seriously affect your vision. Amongst others, it can detect:
Glaucoma is a serious condition that can severely corrupt your vision. It damages the optic nerve at the point where it leaves the eye, often causing undetectable harm.
- AGE RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION
The most common cause of sight loss in the over-fifties, age-related macular degeneration causes the gradual breakdown of the central area of the retina.
With more than two million adult sufferers in the UK alone, diabetes is a major cause for concern. Don’t let it affect you or your family and book an appointment today. This examination can pick up early signs of diabetes, making treatment easier and more effective.
- MACULAR HOLES
Vision can be seriously affected by small holes in the retina- otherwise known as ‘macular holes’- causing the corruption of detailed vision and even the loss of sight itself.
- VITREOUS DETACHMENT
Vitreous detachment occurs when the ‘jelly’ inside our eyeball disconnects from the back and moves towards the centre, damaging the structure. Sometimes it doesn’t detach, but pulls against the retinal surface instead. This strain can cause serious harm to your ability to see and can even create a hole in the retina itself.
We can offer detailed imaging of your eye to detect vision conditions
