Cirrus HD-OCT Will Revolutionize Early Detection Of Common Eye Conditions
Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/23/2014 -- Dr. Scott Campbell of SPEX in Seattle, Washington announced this week the addition of the revolutionary new Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT.
Dr. Campbell comments on the addition of the Cirrus HD-OCT:
"Our practice is based on attention to detail, strong patient relationships, top quality eyewear fashion & lenses, and being on the leading edge of eyecare technology. True to the high-tech nature of SPEX eyecare, we use the best technology throughout our office, eye exams and customer care. As part of this we are excited to offer the new Cirrus HD-OCT, the next generation in advanced detection of many dangerous and common eye conditions including glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Although these conditions are often associated with advanced age, certain genetic dispositions, eye injuries and illness can cause these eye conditions to manifest themselves at any age. This is why advanced detection, with it's ability to catch eye conditions such as these early, are so important. Advanced technology often means early detection, which means early and accurate treatment. This leads, ultimately, to an overall better patient outcome. This is the reason that our practice places such an emphasis on providing our patients with the latest in eyecare technology."
The Cirrus HD-OCT takes 3 dimensional images of the eye, allowing Dr. Campbell and his team to see what's happening with individual layers of eye tissue. Using a specific wavelength of laser, Dr. Campbell takes a very detailed digital scan of all parts of your eye. The digital imaging procedure is quick, safe, non-invasive and painless, provides instant, direct imaging of the form and structure of eye tissue and uses eye-safe near-infra-red light.
Image resolution received from the Cirrus OCT is extremely high quality. After the scan, it is possible to digitally analyze slices of tissue as thin as 1/25,000 of an inch, making tracking changes in your eye easier and more precise than ever before. Since many eye conditions such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration may advance very slowly and painlessly, you may not even know your eye sight is worsening. This makes being able to monitor changes in your eyes at the level made possible by the Cirrus HD-OCT extremely valuable. If Dr. Campbell and his team find that there are changes indicative of one of these eye conditions, being able to monitor changes in such minute detail also allows the formation of a treatment plan tailored exactly to the individual needs of your eyes.
