This device is mostly used in order to examine the macula or the optic nerve (papilla). This device is used very often at the Eye Clinic in Winksele.
This device works with a light beam that through various structures in the eye is reflected in another manner. In this way, a cross section is created of, for example, the macula (yellow spot). The ophthalmologist will ask for these images frequently for following up on macula degeneration and glaucoma and also when screening the macula for a cataract operation.
Example: OCT of the macula (yellow spot)
