Optical Coherence Tomography is an imaging method that uses
light to scan the retina and optic nerve. This diagnostic system gives
the doctor immediate access to images and analysis to see complete
cross-sectional images of the retina, referencing over 1000 data points.
This is the first and only instrument that can "see" below the surface
of the retina to examine the retinal layers. OCT provides detailed
images of structures affected by glaucoma and other abnormalities of the
retina, including detached retina, diabetes, macular holes, age-related
macular degeneration (AMD), and pre/post cataract macula assessment.
The scan takes only minutes to perform.
