The article focuses on the effective use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) tool in treating retinal conditions. OCT is a diagnostic device producing multiple high-resolution for cross-sectional image, as well as provides information about the pathogenesis of this condition. It also offers a higher resolution, superior speed, and enhanced retinal imaging quality.
