iVue OCT

Central Penn Vision now has the iVue OCT! OCT stands for Optical Coherence Tomography. This technology acts like a very high resolution optical ultrasound scan of the eye and uses reflections from within the eye to provide cross sectional images of the retina, optic nerve, and cornea. The scans are painless and simple to obtain in the office.

This imaging technique now allows us to make more precise and earlier diagnoses of eye diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. The OCT will provide our patients with ocular disease the most effective way of monitoring their conditions. It is becoming the new standard of care for managing many different eye diseases, and we are very excited to add this technology to our practice!
