OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)
Optical Coherence Tomography is the one of the latest technologies that takes a topographical map of the back of your eye using laser scanning techniques.
Depending on the area that your Ophthalmologist wishes to concentrate on, the test can look at your macula, optic disc or general retina. An OCT scan can monitor changes in macula degeneration, macula hole, and the nerve fibre layer that is effected in conditions such as glaucoma. Conditions such as diabetic macular oedema and vein occlusions can have their treatment determined by the findings of an OCT.
