An OCT, or optical coherence tomography is a diagnostic test used by physicians to help make an diagnosis. With OCT, a special diagnostic laser camera is used to photograph your retina. It measures the thickness of the retina and is also very sensitive at detecting swelling and fluid. OCT can also help to diagnose irregularities that are too small to be seen in an examination or with angiography.
The optomap produces an image that is unique and provides our doctors with a high-resolution 200° image in order to ascertain the health of your retina. This is much wider than a traditional 45° image. Many eye problems can develop without you knowing, in fact, you may not even notice any change in your sight - fortunately, diseases or damage such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina.
Automated perimetry is one product of the computer revolution that has had a dramatic impact on the practice of ophthalmology, affecting the quality of both the perimetric test (perimetric technique) and the interpretation of the test results.
