Abstract

Optical coherence tomography provides a high-resolution imaging of ocular tissues to improve the diagnosis and management of diabetic retinopathy by producing reliable, reproducible and objective retinal images especially in diabetic macular edema that can clearly only be detected with OCT. It enhances the ability to exactly diagnose diabetic macular edema, epiretinal membranes, vitreomacular or vitroretinal traction. OCT also helps in visualising morphological changes of the retina in diabetic retinopathy. It demonstrates that macular edema which is a complex clinical entity with various morphology. With the OCT, structural changes and quantitative assessment of macular edema have become feasible as determined with retinal thickness and volume.

Keywords: OCT, Diabetic retinopathy.
