Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical Coherence Tomography, abbreviated OCT, is an extremely sensitive, non-invasive scan of the retina.  Cross-sectional images of the retina are generated by a small infrared light.  OCT can be used to determine the amount of fluid in and beneath the retina in a variety of diseases such as diabetes, age-related macular degeneration and vein occlusions.  Macular holes and epiretinal membranes, too are often imaged with OCT. This procedure allows the physician to monitor the thickness and shape of the retina, which is beneficial to overall eye care.
