Ocular Coherence Tomography or OCT for short, provides advanced intra ocular cross sectional images of ocular tissues.
We have the finest retinal imaging device in existence on site, giving our patients immediate access to high powered retinal, macular and glaucoma diagnostics in office. Cross sectional corneal and contact lens images support fitting of advanced contact lens designs.
Most of us are familar with MRI and CAT scans these days. Like those devices, Ocular Coherence Tomography provides an extremely high resolution image of an examined eye structure. These images are obtained using multiple low intensity laser lights and then displayed on computer screens for doctor analysis.
One of many valuable capabilities of this instrument is to not only look at, but also to look down into the internal structure of the retina in cross sections at an almost cellular level. This high resolution, and ability to look into retinal structure provides never before available diagnostic information supporting complex medical decision making.
This cutting edge technology is revolutionizing glaucoma diagnoses and monitoring. Having this capability in office facilitates accurate diagnosis of macular and other retinal disease which we manage with the help of Colorado's retinal subspecialized ophthalmologists. Glaucoma diagnosis, monitoring and treatment is available from our doctor and in conjunction with subspecialized ophthalmologists through our referral.
