Viewpoint Opticians Eye Care

Optical Coherence Tomography


Optical Coherence Tomography or otherwise known an ‘OCT’ is a new imaging technique that provides high resolution and cross-sectional images of the eye. In short it gives us opticians a very unique look at the retina and a real accurate representation of your actual eye ball.  An OCT scan allows microstructures of the eye to be imaged and shows different colour-coded layers of the retina. It is particularly useful in the diagnosis and management of eye conditions such as age related macular degeneration, diabetic macular oedema, macular hole and glaucoma.

An eye examination at Viewpoint is a unique experience unlike most high street opticians. We do not work within the NHS so all patients are seen privately irrespective of their age or any other reason that may qualify for a free examination elsewhere. We use a number of techniques that you won’t find at an NHS optician (or even most private ones). Below we explain some of the benefits of the exclusive equipment that we use and how it can benefit your eye sight.



Because of the technology, Optical Coherence Tomography allows us to diagnose eye conditions (as mentioned above) much earlier than any standard equipment could detect. We have had countless cases with customers joining us from high street franchised opticians as they believe that their eye sight deserves more care and attention.

The technology we have at Viewpoint far surpasses any high street optician. We are not part of the NHS and because of this we can use our own state of the art equipment found in some of the top opticians worldwide. Remember these techniques won’t be found in your high street opticians, at Viewpoint we are one of the only private opticians in the UK to use Optical Coherence Tomography and we make it our aim to supply the public with the best eye care available.

Take a look at our Testimonials and see how our knowledge and techniques can give your eyes the care and attention they need.
