OCT

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a relatively new diagnostic modality in ophthalmology. It is a non-invasive techniques that uses the interferometry concept to obtain in vivo cross-sections of the retina. The latest OCT machines such as the Acuvue show highly accurate images and provide very precise details.


How is it done?

 

 •  The patient’s pupils are first dilated using eyedrops prior to the image.
 •  The patient’s head is positioned in front of the camera and the lens aligned with the eye to be studied. No anesthesia is needed during the study.
 •  Images are taken within 10 seconds during which the patient should avoid moving or blinking.


Which patients need OCT imaging?
OCT is especially useful in patients with macular disease such as Diabetic macular edema and Age related macular degeneration, it provides valuable information about the macula, its structure and it’s thickness.

 

It is very helpful as a diagnostic tool and to follow up the patient after initiation of treatment.

 

OCT also is recommended in patients with suspected glaucoma where it gives a highly accurate image of the optic nerve.
