THE TECHNOLOGY OF THE 3D OCT EYE SCAN
Optometry has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, and we now have methods and tools that allow us to protect your sight from damage. At David Paul Opticians we can use the latest Topcon 3D technology to determine whether you’re at risk for diabetes or age-related macular degeneration. We do this by taking images of each layer of the retina. Through early diagnosis we’re better able to achieve the most positive outcome – both in terms of treatment and recovery. We aim to give our customers the most comprehensive care possible, which is why we’ve invested heavily in the most advanced systems.
UNDERSTAND YOUR VISION
It’s not possible to detect diseases in the eyes very early unless using the OCT eye test. It uses light waves in a way not dissimilar to an ultrasound, but only for retinal problems. The best part is that the exam is completely pain-free and nothing will touch the eye. When it’s done, our expert team is able to use Topcon 3D tech to give you a fuller understanding of the results.

WHY IS AN OCT SCAN SO BENEFICIAL?
Standard methods of optical examination are good, and they do help us to catch some problems early, but there are those that just cannot be detected without using more updated techniques. Using Topcon 3D technology we can detect conditions including:
- Macular Holes
- Vitreous Detachment
- Macular Degeneration
Each of these conditions can become much more severe if left untreated – help us to catch them early by giving us a call today.
Our team is very happy to talk to you about the benefits of the OCT scan over the phone, and can even explain some of the symptoms that might imply you’re in need of one. We may be based in Berkhamsted, but patients from all over the country have trusted us with their vision health, so don’t wait to get in touch if you want to know more.

You can maintain your current lifestyle by getting a good grip on your sight and ensuring that any treatment you get isn’t delayed a minute longer. Book an OCT scan with us at David Paul today.
WHAT DOES AN OCT SCAN ACTUALLY DP?
The scan is very compressive and can determine the presence of various conditions before they actually start impacting your vision. It can detect, among others:
This is a potentially severe condition that can enormously disrupt your vision by harming the optic nerve at the place where it leaves the eye.
- AGE RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION
This is the most prevalent cause of poor vision in the over-fifties age range. It causes a gradual breakdown of the middle part of the retina.
Over two million people in the UK suffer from diabetes in adulthood and it can be a real problem for your sight. Our exam can pick up on the early signs and make treatment more effective by starting earlier.
- MACULAR HOLES
These small holes in the retina can cause you to have problems with detailed vision – and in some cases even lose your sight.
- VITREOUS DETACHMENT
This occurs when ‘jelly’ in our eye moves towards the centre, away from the back, and damages the structure of the eye. It doesn’t always detach and can pull against the surface instead. This can cause considerable problems when it comes to sight and can even cause retinal holes.
We offer high-tech and very detailed imaging of your eye to detect conditions early.
