    Impact of optical coherence tomography on diagnostic decision-making by UK community optometrists: a clinical vignette study

    Purpose: In recent years, there has been widespread investment in imaging technologies by community optometrists in the UK, most notably optical coherence tomography (OCT). The aim of the current study was to determine the value of OCT in the diagnosis of posterior segment diseases in a representative sample of community optometrists using a clinical vignette methodology. Methods: A group of community optometrists (n = 50) initially completed a standardised training package on OCT interpretation followed by a computerbased assessment featuring 52 clinical vignettes, containing images of healthy (n = 8) or glaucomatous (n = 18) discs or healthy (n = 8) or diseased (n ...
