At Albert Road we have a simple aim: To be the BEST optician in the world! Now I know that seems like a bold claim, but this is a journey that starts with one step at a time.
On our little quest, we decided to invest in TOP of the range eye testing equipment called an OCT – Ocular Coherence Tomography.
During an eye examination the most opticians should look and take a picture of the back of the eye to examine the retina. The retina itself is several layers deep and a photograph (or naked eye) can only see the top layer. An OCT looks into the deeper layers of the retina where certain eye conditions start. By detecting these early, we can help preserve your eyesight going forward.
