An OCT is like an MRI for the eye.  This cutting edge technology allows your doctors to scan your eyes in the matter of seconds!  Its resolution is so great, that your doctor can see what layer of the retina is affected by any eye pathology.

These scans are interpreted and compared to a normative database to help detect eye pathology.  In addition, an OCT scan can be used to manage and track eye diseases over time.

An OCT can be used to:

Scan the retina (macular degeneration, diabetes, retinal holes and tears, vitreal detatchments and traction, etc)

Scan the Optic Nerve (glaucoma)

Scan the Nerve Fiber Layer of the retina (glaucoma)

Scan the cornea (cornea ulcers, scarring, thining)

Scan the filtering angle of the eye (glaucoma, iridotomy)


Great Images & Dense Data Cubes

The Cirrus Enhanced HD Scans are second to none. They capture highly dense data cubes for all the detail needed for analyses that help identify even the most subtle pathology.

How does the Cirrus Help My Doctor?

  • Spot small areas of pathology.  Tightly spaced scans, either 30 or 47 microns apart in the cube, ensure that small areas of pathology are imaged.  For reference, a human hair is about 40-120 microns in diameter.
  • Fuel for analysis.  Millions of data points from the cube are fed into the ZEISS proprietary algorithms for accurate scans, reproducible measurements and tracking of change over time.
  • See the tissue from different perspectives.  View the cube data from all angles, with 3D rendering, OCT fundus images and customized en face slabs.

3D and Advanced Visualization™

This feature allows your doctor to draw insights from perspectives beyond the traditional cross-sectional scans. Cirrus data cubes can be processed and mined with sophisticated 3D visualization tools. Layers of the retina can be isolated for viewing. Your doctor can fly through from different angles to help better diagnose pathology.
