Use of OCT in the detection and diagnosis of glaucoma

Riccardo Cheloni and Jonathan Denniss MCOptom

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is rapidly becoming a cornerstone for optometrists as a valuable tool to detect and diagnose glaucoma. This article discusses the strengths and limitations of using OCT for glaucoma diagnosis, giving practical advice on how OCT can be employed by optometrists.

Clinicians should be aware of the strengths and limitations of OCT when assessing patients for glaucoma. Indeed, despite great technological improvements, the detection of early glaucoma remains a significant clinical challenge, requiring input from a battery of clinical tests.
