optical coherence tomography
With OCT technology, we are able to scan and take a look at individual layers of the retina. These images allow us to diagnose diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma earlier.
Pictures are taken of the back of the eyes to view important structures such as the optic nerve, macula, and blood vessels. This procedure is not a replacement for dilated fundus examinations. Fundus photos are great for tracking progression and aid in patient education.
We don’t do this procedure on every patient; however, it is a great tool for looking at cell functionality. Great for early diagnosis and monitoring disease progression.
