Abstract

Detection of disease progression is an important and challenging component of glaucoma management. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has proved to be valuable in the detection of glaucomatous damage. With its high resolution and proven measurement reproducibility, OCT has the potential to become an important tool for glaucoma progression detection. This manuscript presents the capabilities of the OCT technology pertinent for detection of progressive glaucomatous damage and provides a review of the current knowledge on the device's clinical performance.
