OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY (OCT)
A diagnostic test that uses low intensity, invisible laser beams to measure the thickness of tissues within the retina. It produces a hi-definition, magnified image of the internal structures of the retina. The test is completely non-invasive and has no risk factors associated with it.
FUNDUS AUTOFLUORESCENCE (FAF)
A diagnostic test that uses a retina camera to illuminate the retina with a specific wavelength of light. This light causes certain molecules within the retina to glow, which is captured by the camera. The resulting image provides valuable information on the health status of the cells within the tissues of the retina. The test is completely non-invasive and risk-free.
A laser treatment in which the laser creates heat to cauterize abnormal blood vessels in the retina.
