The article reports on the benefits of developments in optical coherence tomography (OCT) which yield high-resolution retinal images. It is noted that fast, precise spectral optical coherence tomography allows physicians to distinguish layers of the retina and monitor pathologies. According to physician Richard Rosen, OCT provides the ability to appreciate microscopic pathology of each of the various retinal layers on a daily basis in the clinic.
