At Bay Area Vision our optometrists take pride in caring for the overall health of your vision, and to do so we employ a variety of methods for examining and evaluating your eyes. One of the procedures provided by our practice is Optical Coherence Tomography, also known as OCT.
This painless, non-invasive procedure allows us to examine different structures within the eye in cross sectional views. This technology helps our doctors to detect and monitor a variety of eye conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.
How Optical Coherence Tomography Works
The OCT uses light to generate images of the retina. Light waves are passed into the eye, and the way in which light is reflected back is measured by the OCT to create colored, cross-sectional images of the retina. Your optometrist can look at these images to determine if the retina of the eye appears normal or has a problem.
OCTA Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography with AngioPlex
AngioPlex® OCT Angiography from ZEISS ushers in a new era of eye care with non-invasive imaging of retinal microvasculature—taking glaucoma and retinal disease management and treatment planning to the Non-invasive, dyeless angiography.
Unlike other OCTA technologies, ZEISS AngioPlex enables the visualization of both vascular and structural information from a single, non-invasive scan next level. This technology is beneficial in diagnosis and management of ocular diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
