The most up-to-date retina testing method. Due to exceptional accuracy of 3 micrometers, it is possible to view and evaluate all layers of the retina as if we were looking at them under the microscope. The test evaluates the most important part of the retina – macula lutea.
The macula lutea allows a person to see details, colors, to read and to write. If the macula lutea is damaged the patient can see only the outline of objects, does not recognize faces or bus numbers. The most common disease of the macula lutea is age-related degeneration (AMD).
DRI OCT Triton – up-to-date device for macula lutea and optic nerve computed tomography (OCT, GDX) and angiography.
As the second in Poland and the only one in Mazovia, we are holders of the eye testing equipment in Swept Source technology – DRI OCT Triton. The device allows much better penetration of the eye structures – up to the sclera and choroid, also in eyes with high refractive deffect (allows examination of eyes with defect from -33D to +40D) and worsened translucency. Triton allows a good quality examination in cases of corneal spots, cataract, as well as of minor bleeding to the vitreous. All this made it difficult – and often impossible – to test with conventional OCT devices.
If you had problems with this type of test, you were referred to as a “difficult to diagnose patient” or if a substantial vision defect makes it impossible to perform the examination – come to us!
The properties of our new equipment are particularly useful for diagnosing age-related macular degeneration, central serous retinopathy, macular hole, choroidal nevus and others.
