      OCTA: Filling in New Pieces of the Glaucoma Puzzle

      OCT angiography (OCTA) has been inspiring groundbreaking questions and providing new answers about retinal vascular disease, and it’s doing the same in glaucoma. I’m passionate about this technology and how it can help me to help my glaucoma patients, today and in the future. I’m utilizing OCTA as a clinician and as a researcher. In my referral practice at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, I obtain OCTA scans on all patients the first day I see them. Alongside the OCT-generated measurements I had already been assessing — retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, ganglion cell complex ...

      Latest Developments in OCT Enhance Its Role in Glaucoma Care

      N ow that spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) has made its way into nearly every glaucoma practice, doctors and patients are benefitting from its advanced capabilities. Its faster image acquisition speed improves resolution, reproducibility and repeatability, enabling new strategies for achieving the ultimate goal in glaucoma care: objective detection of disease progression. “Determining whether a patient is getting worse or not getting worse is our holy grail,” says Robert J. Noecker, MD, a glaucoma specialist with Ophthalmic Consultants of Connecticut. “Today’s OCT instruments give us more confidence in what we’re seeing from scan to scan.” The basis for how Dr ...

      Finding “Big Ideas” in Ophthalmic Innovation - Venture Capitalists Will Back Potential “Game Changers”

      Ophthalmologists are well known for coming up with original ideas for devices and instruments that allow them to treat patients in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. If you're thinking of bringing your concept to an ophthalmic company or VC firm, it had better offer more than an incremental improvement over what's currently available ...In the area of diagnostic instruments, by far the most outstanding innovation of recent years that has greatly transformed the way ophthalmologists practice is optical coherence technology (OCT). The development of OCT is chronicled in an accompanying article by Eric A. Swanson, entrepreneur, editor ...
