The Best $40 You Could Spend on Your Vision
When was the last time you had your eyes checked? If you can’t remember, or you know for a fact that it’s been more than a year, then why not take advantage of the last month on the calendar, and exercise your insurance benefits while looking after your precious vision?
Beaumont Vision is currently offering a complete “Wellness Exam” for just an additional $39. The exam includes a Retinal Imaging procedure, as well as an Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT scan. Our professional technician will perform these two tests before you go into the exam room, at which point the doctor will analyze, review and weigh in on the tests.
What Is an Optical Coherence Tomorgraphy (OCT) Scan?
An Optical Coherence Tomography scan is one of the newest advancements in the world of eye-imaging technology. Much like an ultrasound, this diagnostic technique uses (light as opposed to sound waves) to produce higher resolution pictures of all of the structural layers of a patient’s eye.
The best news? OCT scan images are producing a revolution in the eye care industry, allowing optometrists to detect and treat a wide variety of eye conditions much earlier than usual.
For patients suffering from the very beginning stages of such common eye conditions as Glaucoma, Age-Related Macular degeneration, Retinal Detachment, or Diabetic Retinopathy, the combination of both of these procedures will provide an excellent opportunity to diagnose current status, and implement solutions.
If you’re a sensitive patient, it should be noted that each of these procedures are noninvasive and painless.
