Focal Points 2019 Module: Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma Diagnosis

Focal Points 2019 Module: Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma Diagnosis

Early intervention is crucial in the detection of glaucomatous damage in order to delay or halt progression of the disease. Unfortunately, timely diagnosis of glaucoma is not always possible.

Familiarity with standard OCT parameters for glaucoma diagnosis as well as glaucoma analysis printouts specific to various devices will allow for an earlier diagnosis.

This Focal Points module discusses these parameters, as well as common artifacts on OCT printouts and their potential influence on accurate interpretation.

By completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe the role of OCT technology in glaucoma evaluation.
  • Interpret standardized OCT glaucoma analysis printouts of currently available devices.
  • Recognize common artifacts observed in OCT printouts and their potential influence on accurate interpretation.
