Optical Coherence Tomography in Delhi

What is Optical Coherence Tomography?

Optical Coherence Tomography is a non-invasive imaging technique used to obtain high-resolution images of the cross-sections of the retina. The layers of the retina can be differentiated and the retinal thickness can be measured to help in the early detection and diagnosis of retinal diseases and conditions.


Why is Optical Coherence Tomography used?

Optical Coherence Tomography is used for various reasons. Some of them are:

  • Monitoring disease progression
  • Verifying suspected swelling of the retina
  • Evaluation and diagnosis of retinal conditions
  • Retinal thickness measurement
  • Differentiation and evaluation of retinal layers
  • Determination of the effectiveness of therapy


What happens during the Optical Coherence Tomography exam?

Before the Optical Coherence Tomography exam, the Ophthalmologist may instill dilating eye drops to make it easier to examine the retina.The patient will rest their head close to the equipment on a support, to keep it still. The equipment then scans the eyes without touching it, using light rays. The process is short and takes only about 5 to10 minutes.


Does Optical Coherence Tomography hurt?

No, Optical Coherence Tomography does not hurt and is not uncomfortable. This procedure uses light rays to measure retinal thickness. No X-rays or other harmful radiations are used.


Is Optical Coherence Tomography safe?

Yes, Optical Coherence Tomography is a safe procedure. Since it is non-invasive, there are no post-procedural complications involved. There is no contact between the scanning instrument and the eye during the procedure and only light rays are used for evaluation. 


What conditions can Optical Coherence Tomography detect?

Optical Coherence Tomography can detect and diagnose many eye conditions. Some of them are:

  • Macular hole or pucker
  • Glaucoma
  • Macular degeneration
  • Central serous retinopathy
  • Vitreous traction
  • Macular edema
  • Diabetic retinopathy


What are the benefits of Optical Coherence Tomography?

Some of the benefits of Optical Coherence Tomography are:

  • Non-invasive
  • Short procedure
  • Does not hurt
  • Does not use X-ray or other radiations
  • Clearer and sharper resolution of images for evaluation
  • Can be applied to a wide range of medical specialties
