Glaucoma

Optical Coherence Tomography (OTC)

What is Optical Coherence Tomography?

Glaucoma Treatment

Optical Coherence Tomography, or OCT, is a laser-based, noncontact, noninvasive imaging technique that is capable of obtaining high-resolution images of the retina and its components.

OCT is analogous to ultrasound imaging except that light rather than sound waves is used, resulting in a much higher resolution of approximately 10µm in the retina. OCT provides direct, real-time, cross-sectional images of retinal tissue layers, allowing improved resolution and diagnostic capabilities of a variety of eye diseases.

OCT has been shown to be clinically useful for imaging and directly visualizing selected macular diseases including macular holes, macular edema, age-related macular degeneration, central serous chorioretinopathy, epiretinal membranes, schisis cavities associated with optic disc pits, and retinal inflammatory diseases.
