With a wide range of conditions that may cause photophobia, or light sensitivity, the practice’s recently announced optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans are an effective diagnostic method. An OCT scan uses light waves to create cross-sectional images of the retina, which is the tissue at the back of the eye that receives light and transmits it as messages to the brain.

The practice hopes its new announcement will encourage more New York residents struggling with not just photophobia, but also those who have a family history of eye disease or glaucoma, to seek its non-invasive OCT scans. Westchester Eyes can use its OCT device to detect retinal diseases, glaucoma, early-stage macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other conditions.
Light sensitivity, or photophobia, is often experienced in tandem with other issues like headaches, fatigue, nausea, and eye discomfort. While it is a common issue, it can be related to a more serious underlying ocular condition which, if left untreated, can cause progress to cause increased sensitivity and visual deterioration.
Westchester Eyes recommends that patients over the age of 25 who are concerned about their eye health schedule an appointment to receive an OCT scan at the clinic. Regular OCT scans allow Westchester Eyes’ optometrists to detect abnormalities at their earliest appearance.
