When the first commercial time-domain OCT (TD-OCT) debuted 5 years later, it was able to acquire data at a rate of only 100 axial scans per second. Six years later, this speed had quadrupled to 400 axial scans per second. As improvements in speed and quality persisted, OCT became the gold standard for diagnosis of glaucoma and many retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease. OCT is based ...
