Optical Coherence Tomography is a non-invasive imaging test that is ordered by your optometrist to help diagnose and monitor certain conditions.
Optical Coherence Tomography uses light waves to take cross-section images of your retina. The technology behind OCT enables your optometrist to see details of the eye that would otherwise be unviewable.
An OCT scan is a quick, painless experience. To prepare you, your eye doctor may require you to have eyedrops that will dilate your pupils and make it easier to see your retina. This means that the scanner will get clearer, more concise images. OCT equipment will scan the eyes without contacting them.
