What is the Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT machine)


What is ocular coherence tomography (OCT)?

The OCT instrument is used for a variety of eye issues.

OCT instruments with posterior segment capabilities help to diagnose and manage conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and other retinal disorders.

Anterior segment capabilities help doctors check the front surface of the eye, such as the cornea.

Many doctors who fit scleral contact lenses will also use the anterior segment function to check the fit of your scleral lenses.

They are looking to check the amount of liquid between the contact lens and your cornea, as well as checking edge alignment.

This tool can be very valuable to help your doctor fit lenses with extreme accuracy!
