Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

OCT Machine - Optometrist Toronto - Bay St. Eyecare

OCT is a noninvasive imaging technology used to obtain high resolution cross sectional images of the retina which is especially important for conditions such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. This procedure is similar to ultrasound technology except the imaging is performed by light rather than sound. This enables the measurement of the retinal nerve fiber thickness for glaucoma and other neurological conditions.
