Having been the first practice in the Vale of Glamorgan to use Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) at our Barry practice, we’re now delighted to be the first practice in Wales to unveil the new Nidek Retinascan Duo at our Penarth site. This state of the art machine allows us to take photographs of your eyes but also allows to see below the service and view lower layers of the retina previously invisible to us.
This will allow us to identify microscopic changes to the structure of your retina and optic nerve meaning we are able to identify conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration at a very early stage. To find out more, see our OCT page. The cost for scans and interpretation is £35 although there is no supplementary fee if you are part of our EyeCare Plan scheme.
