BRADY OPTICIANS LAUNCH REVOLUTIONARY 3D OCT SCAN

first_imgBrady Opticians, Donegal Town are renowned for being the leader in safeguarding your eye health over the years, and their revolutionary new 3D OCT scans are a prime example of their innovation.U2 frontman Bono recently revealed that he has had the eye condition glaucoma for the past twenty years.He is not alone, as it affects approximately two in every 100 people over the age of 40. The danger with chronic glaucoma is that it’s a painless condition and people do not realise they have it.Glaucoma damages the optic nerve at the back of the eye resulting in a restricted ‘field of vision’.This impairs the persons’ ability to drive and navigate stairs for example.Unfortunately, the damage caused by glaucoma cannot be reversed, so it is important to have regular, thorough eye examinations. This is particularly relevant for those who are at risk of developing the disease, especially those who have a family member with the condition.Without treatment, glaucoma may eventually lead to blindness.Fortunately, there have been major advancements in the technology used to aid the early detection of glaucoma such as Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT).Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to provide a 3D view of all the major structures in the eye enabling many eye abnormalities such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetes, and glaucoma to be detected at a very early stage.The scan is non-invasive, painless, and takes only a few minutes to complete. Brady Opticians are the first practice in Donegal Town to offer their patients this pioneering, cutting-edge technology which is usually only found in eye hospitals.Brady Opticians highly recommend that their patients consider utilising this advanced technology to safeguard their eye health.The charge for this service is €35 and is not covered by the medical card scheme, but the health benefits are obvious.Please contact Brady Opticians today on 074 9721727 or go online at http://www.bradyopticians.com/services_item/opticalcoherencetomographys_scans_oct/ to book your OCT scan appointment.
