At Derby City Eye Care, we're excited to bring the future of eye care to Crestwood, Kentucky, with our OCT and Octomap technology. These groundbreaking tools are redefining how we assess and manage eye health, offering unparalleled insights into your vision and overall eye health.

Exploring OCT and Octomap Technology

Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, is a remarkable imaging technique that allows us to capture detailed images of the retina, the light-sensitive layer at the back of your eye. This advanced technology creates a high-resolution, cross-sectional view, enabling us to examine the different layers of the retina in exceptional detail. This is crucial for early detection and management of various eye conditions.

In tandem with OCT, the Octomap technology is a game-changer in retinal imaging. It provides an ultra-widefield view, capturing about 80% of your retina in a single image. Traditional methods typically cover only 15-20%. This broader perspective is invaluable in detecting peripheral retinal anomalies that might otherwise go unnoticed.

The Importance and Applications of These Technologies

Why are these technologies so important? The retina is key to your vision, and changes in its health can be indicators of various diseases. OCT and Octomap help in early detection and ongoing management of conditions like:

- Glaucoma

- Diabetic retinopathy

- Macular degeneration

- Retinal detachments and tears

These tools are also essential in routine eye examinations, providing a comprehensive understanding of your eye health.

Who Benefits from OCT and Octomap?

While everyone can benefit from these advanced technologies, they are particularly vital for:

- Individuals with diabetes or high blood pressure

- Those with a family history of eye disease

- Anyone experiencing symptoms of vision changes

Recognizing the Need for Advanced Eye Exams

If you're experiencing symptoms like blurred vision, difficulty seeing at night, floaters, or sudden changes in your vision, it's time to consider an advanced eye exam. These symptoms could indicate underlying conditions that OCT and Octomap technology can detect.


At Derby City Eye Care, our commitment to your eye health drives us to adopt the most advanced diagnostic tools. We believe everyone deserves the best in eye care, and with OCT and Octomap technology, we can provide just that.

Don’t compromise on your eye health. Whether you have specific concerns or just need a routine check-up, our advanced OCT and Octomap technology will ensure you receive the most comprehensive care.
