Cedar Park Vision Center Adds Innovative Retinal Imaging Technology

The technicians at Cedar Park Vision Center are proud to offer Optical Coherence Tomography to their patients. OCT is a valuable tool for detecting and monitoring a variety of eye diseases.

New advances in vision treatment are constantly being developed, and Cedar Park Vision Center strives to offer their patients the best in eye care. Optical Coherence Tomography is an innovative new tool that allows technicians to catch eye diseases at their earliest stages, and develop an effective treatment plan. Cedar Park is now offering this service as part of their vision screening and therapy services.

Cedar Park Vision Center is constantly striving to stay up-to-date with the latest, most effective vision tools for screening, detecting, and treating vision problems and diseases. The practice has now added a powerful new piece of technology to aid in the evaluation and therapy for a variety of conditions, enabling the team to catch and treat problems early. Serious retinal conditions, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, can be detected and monitored earlier and more accurately than ever before with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).

OCT, now widely recognized among leading optometrists as a vital diagnostic tool, will soon become as important to the treatment of ocular diseases as an MRI is to brain scans and a CT is to heart imaging. This non-invasive imaging technique uses a highly sophisticated laser light, rather than sound waves, to obtain cross-sectional images of the retina. OCT provides a much greater resolution than the outdated echographical procedures, allowing technicians to diagnose and evaluate eye conditions far more accurately than what was previously possible with earlier technologies.

Some of the beneficial features of OCT include:

- Real time imaging to give technicians the most up to date information possible

- Highly accurate details that greatly reduce the chance of error

- Painless and non-invasive

- Functions as a virtual biopsy without the need for tissue samples

- Resolution up to 100 times finer than a standard ultrasound procedure

The highly accurate results made possible by OCT imaging allow optical technicians to catch eye problems early, greatly reducing or even eliminating many of the more outdated therapies that used to be considered standard. In many cases, early diagnosis and intervention can prevent the need for more invasive treatment, including surgery. OCT is a groundbreaking piece of technology that has the potential to make vision care easier and more convenient for countless patients.

Quality vision care includes a full range of screening, diagnostic, and therapeutic procedures. Cedar Park Vision employs the latest advances in optical technology, and now offers OCT as part of their standard vision screening process.
