Monitoring Glaucoma and Retinal Disease
This article leverages the author's extensive experience with technologies in both fields, describing changes that occur in glaucoma and retinal disease and the newest ways of monitoring those changes, including structural analysis of retinal diseases and combining structural and functional analyses of glaucoma.
Exploring Advances in OCT Imaging
The days of looking into a patient's eye with a direct ophthalmoscope and straining to discern the details of pathology will soon be behind us. With the growing prominence of OCT technology, we can clearly see and evaluate 3-D image changes at the foveal level--2 to3 ?m in size-- after a scan that takes only a few seconds to acquire. As OCT is embraced, it is important that to understand all of the capabilities it has to offer and this paper tackles that assignment.
Tracking the OCT Revolution
Because anti-VEGF drugs, and therapies such as lasers and steroids, produce limited durations of effect and better outcomes on early-stage disease, there exists a need for heightened monitoring of existing retinal patients and quicker diagnosis of new ones. OCT excels at both and this article outlines how.
Scanning the Future of OCT
As OCT continues its rapid evolution, some experts wonder if cuts in Medicare reimbursement for OCT scans will stifle future innovations. From the beginning, the retina and cornea have been the primary targets of OCT research and this article posits that this trend will continue with further developments in the future.
Maximize the Use of Anterior Segment OCT
Anterior segment OCT is a relatively new technology, and hardware and software updates continue to be unveiled. As clinicians and scientists explore new and expanded applications for this technology, it will likely become a mainstay of clinical practice. In the future, we will see faster acquisition speeds, 3-D imaging and even higher resolution. Get up-to-speed on the latest applications for this technology with this valuable white paper.
What SD-OCT Can Do for You
Spectral domain ocular coherence tomography (SD-OCT) is rapidly becoming an incredibly necessary technology
within optometry. And with good reason. Learn why from this six page Optometric Management report.
Tracking the OCT Revolution
OCT arrived at an opportune moment in medical history... just in time to play handmaiden to the success of anti-VEGF retinal therapy, arguably the
most significant vision-care achievement of our
time. Learn how OCT has transformed the clinical
landscape and earned its standing as an established pillar of eye care at all levels.
