Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography

visante OCTOptical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging technique that provides three-dimensional and cross sectional views of ocular structures with a resolution that approaches that of light microscopy. OCT is widely used clinically for diagnosis and longitudinal monitoring of many retinal disorders.

 

visante 230Anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Visante™, Zeiss-Meditec) utilizes semi-coherent light with high absorption and low penetration, allowing visualization and assessment of the shape, size and position of anterior segment structures. Pre-clinically it is often used for serial evaluations of the cornea, anterior chamber angle, iris and lens.
