Dr. Brown continues to provide the latest in eye health technology—the OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography). Dr. Brown believes this is one of the most important parts of a comprehensive exam in our office.
The OCT painlessly and quickly captures a digital image of your retina without the need for dilating drops and the blurred vision after effects. These images can help identify high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer as well as diseases that can affect your sight like macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal detachments, retinal holes and diabetic retinopathy. These photos will become part of your medical record and when performed on an annual basis, the OCT allows Dr. brown to compare side-by-side each year’s image to detect early changes that may not be causing any symptoms. Dr. Brown will review these images with each patient during their exam.
