Technology We Use
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a very sensitive imaging test used in advanced eye care practices. An OCT is similar to an ultrasound, but instead of sound, it uses light waves to take cross-sectional, structural images of your retina.
OCT angiography (OCTA) is a high definition imaging tool that captures pictures of your retina’s vascular system, including your superficial plexus, deep plexus, choriocapillaris, and outer retina zone.
Goldmann applanation tonometry is a common eye care tool used to measure your intraocular pressure and detect signs of glaucoma. By gently touching the surface of your cornea, a tonometer can measure your intraocular pressure based on the amount of resistance from the eye.
