Optical Coherence Tomography, or “OCT” is a technique for obtaining sub-surface images of translucent or opaque materials at a resolution equivalent to a low-power microscope. It reveals or detects subtle changes, particularly in the eye, that are not visible by other means such as with slit lamp biomicroscopy or funduscopy.
