Columbia, SC, December 9, 2014 - The Eye Center, one of the top refractive surgery centers in South Carolina, providing routine eye care and eye surgery services, has recently acquired the Heidelberg Spectralis Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) machine, one of the most advanced pieces of eye imaging equipment available today. This new addition, says the physicians at Eye Center, will allow them to best manage the care of those patients with glaucoma and macular conditions.
“The inclusion of the Spectralis OCT imaging is the natural progression for our practice,” says Dr. Beau Bryan of The Eye Center. “We have made a commitment to investing in the latest technology so we can continually offer our patients the highest standards of care. The Spectralis allows us to follow macular degeneration and glaucoma progression at levels never seen before.”
The Spectralis OCT technology represents the newest diagnostic technology in eye care, allowing doctors to examine the back of the eye at a level of revolutionary quality. Offering ten times the sensitivity of ultrasound, the Spectralis OCT provides a detailed look at the back of the eye with the ability to display the smallest of objects. This provides eye care specialists the ability to not only more accurately diagnosis a variety of conditions including glaucoma, but also monitor the progression of the condition so they can better follow the impact of treatment. This additional technology, says Dr. Bryan, allows the practice to best manage their patients’ care.
“We are proud to be able to offer the Spectralis OCT imaging here at our practice,” says Dr. Bryan. “Having this level of technology at our fingertips gives us the ability to stay on the cutting-edge of eye care and provide our patients accurate diagnosis, expert management of their conditions, and the standard of care that they deserve.”
The Eye Center is one of the pioneers in eye health, providing comprehensive eye care to patients in South Carolina. Their team of board-certified physicians provides everything from routine eye care and diabetic eye exams to glaucoma care, LASIK, corneal transplants, cataract surgery, an in-house dry eye clinic, and more.
