Advanced technology for eye care diagnosis and eye care treatment has become a great help for ophthalmologists. Optical coherence tomography is one method for viewing extremely detailed images of the eye and accurate diagnoses of most common ocular diseases.
Optical Coherence Tomography
Also called OCT, optical coherence tomography is a sophisticated imaging test that is used by ophthalmologists to help diagnose and check on eye conditions. The test involves the use of harmless infrared light waves to capture images of the retina. With OCT, doctors can view each layer of the retina. It allows them to take precise measurements, diagnose and monitor the response to treatment.
Diagnosing Eye Conditions
Before the optical coherence tomography can be used on an individual, the patient’s eyes are dilated with eye drops to increase the size of the pupil allowing for a better visualization of the retina. […]
