Optical Coherence Tomograpy

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an advanced technology used to produce cross-sectional images of the retina, the light-sensitive lining at the back of the eye where light rays focus on producing vision. These images can help with the detection and treatment of serious eye conditions such as macular degeneration, macular holes, macular swelling and optic nerve damage. We also test with our new Heidelberg OCT machine, which can perform Autofluorescence studies of the eye. This is a new technology that gives different information concerning various retinal pathologies.
