What is an OCT?

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging technique that produces high resolution cross-sectional tomographs (or pictures) of the retina. This technique is very effective in helping to diagnose and guide treatments for a broad variety of retinal diseases. The OCT images will allow the doctors to detect eye conditions and diseases in their early stages, in order to provide the best treatment options for the preservation and restoration of vision. It is painless and in no way dangerous to the eye.
