OCT

 

Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT) is a diagnostic test that allows for the imaging and measurement of retinal thickness. OCT is very useful in detecting retinal swelling or fluid accumulation secondary to a variety of retinal conditions. It provides very valuable information and is also useful for following the response to a treatment. OCT testing has become a standard of care for the assessment and treatment of most retinal conditions. OCT uses rays of light to measure retinal thickness and can be performed in a few minutes. No radiation or x–rays are used in this test.


The OCT is an optical instrument that allows your eye doctor to view the layers of your retina and optic nerve to detect signs of Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Swelling of the Optic Nerve or Macula and other sight threatening conditions.
