The test is completely painless, fast, and not at all burdensome for you.
During the OCT scan, light rays scan the fundus formulas. Enlargement of the pupil is sometimes necessary for more accurate examination to make it easier for light rays to enter the deeper layers of the eye.
It is important that at a given stage of the examination, you look at a point motionless, with your eyes open, without blinking, and fix it. The test assistant will provide instructions throughout the test to ensure that you are getting the right results.
If the use of pupil dilator eye drops is required, the patient’s vision will be dimmed during the duration of pupil dilation. Within a few hours (6-8 hours), the effect of the eye drops will disappear and your vision will be sharp again with proper correction. In light of this, we do not recommend driving a vehicle after the test.
