Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT is a high technology imaging test that allows the eye doctors at the Center for Sight to produce high resolution cross sectional views of the structures of your eye without ever touching it. In some ways this is analogous to CT Scans that are used to “image’ organ systems in other parts of your body. The OCT test consists of multiple scans, and each scan takes about 45-60 seconds, the total test time is between 10-20 minutes. Since it is a non-contact, non-invasive testing method, it is not uncomfortable or difficult for patients. We perform Optical Coherence Tomography and its interpretation right in the comfort and convenience of our office at Center for Sight.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is particularly useful for studying Diabetic Retinopathy, Macular Edema, Macular Holes, Macular Pucker or Epi-Retinal Membranes, Macular Degeneration, Posterior Vitreous Detachment, Central Serous Retinopathy, Disorders of the Optic Nerve and even Glaucoma.
