Optical Coherence Tomography is a non-contact, non-invasive optical diagnostic technology. It can obtain high definition cross-section analysis of a specific eye structure including: cornea, iris, crystal lens, retina, optical nerve head, nerve fibre layer and macula. By analyzing the information obtained, the customer’s ocular condition can be evaluated effectively.
This examination can help early detection of optic nerve fiber layer defects and changes which may lead to the development of glaucoma. Early referral and treatment can then be done to minimize the damage to the eye.
In addition, this examination is very useful for detecting and monitoring macula hole, macular edema or degeneration.
Other functions included: measurement of anterior angle and corneal thickness.
